A News 7 Tamil reporter was threatened by AIADMK party workers inside the party headquarters in Chennai on Thursday evening on live television. 

A video of the showdown is now doing the rounds on social media.

Watch the video here:

In the video, a middle-aged man who seems to be an AIADMK supporter is seen telling the News 7 reporter that they will "burn down the channel" if they reported adversely of the AIADMK.

Thillai, Chief Editor of News 7, told The News Minute that the reporter was threatened for the channel's broadcast stating that the AIADMK did not stand a good chance in the upcoming polls.

Recently, a News7-Dinamalar survey showed that the DMK was ahead in several seats in West Tamil Nadu, which is considered an AIADMK bastion. Dinamalar has since distanced itself from the survey.
