He said a three-member committee has found the four police personnel guilty in the case.
A letter has also been sent to higher authorities for their out of zone transfer.
Earlier in the day, a delegation of journalists approached the SSP, demanding stern action against the erring police personnel.
Journalist Shyam Joshi was allegedly assaulted by police Tuesday when he had asked policemen on duty to not park their vehicle in the middle of the road since people were already pained by traffic congestion near Jamnavata village on Goverdhan road, the police said.
Joshi was discharged from the hospital Wednesday.
