The claim is False.
NewsMeter performed a Keyword Search which led us to Facebook live on the official account of Sudhir Chaudhary. The journalist had come live after he met with a small accident in Mumbai in 2019.
We performed a Google Reverse Image Search of Sudhir Chaudhary's picture which directed us to a report by Samachar, published on July 12, 2019. According to the report, Sudhir Chaudhary has told his fans the reason for not being seen in 'DNA'.
In a video posted on Facebook, Choudhary has told that he had met with an accident while traveling to Mumbai and doctors have advised him to take a rest. Due to this, they have to take a break from 'DNA' for a few days.
Sudhir Chaudhary has suffered an injury to his nose. He also had got a minor fracture. He also shared the information of this post on Twitter.
We then performed a Google Reverse Image Search of the picture with broken glass, which led us to a tweet by ANI on December 01, 2017. According to the tweet, unidentified persons vandalized Mumbai Congress office at CST. More details are awaited.
We had also found a video aired on the YouTube channel of Times of India on December 01, 2017. According to thumbnail, Mumbai regional Congress committee office at Azad Maidan was damaged by unknown persons.
It is therefore evident that the viral claim is False. Both the images are from different incidents. The first image is of Congress party office in Mumbai, not Noida office of Zee News. Sudhir Chaudhary was not beaten up.
