Arnab Goswami Physically Attacked By Congress Goons?
The TV anchor claimed that Sonia Gandhi and the Vadras were responsible for the attacks on him.
The Mumbai Police on Thursday morning arrested two people in connection with an attack on Republic TV’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and his wife, ANI reported.
A First Information Report was filed at the NM Joshi Marg Police Station under Indian Penal Code Sections 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), the police said.
In a video message, Goswami said that two men on a bike had attacked his car while he and his wife Samyabrata Ray were returning to their home around 12.15 am on Thursday. He said that the men initially tried to break the window panes of his car. But when they were unable to do it, and Goswami tried to move the car away, they threw some liquid-filled bottles and again tried to break the windows, he said, adding that he then swerved his car away and drove into his building.
His security personnel caught the two men, Goswami said, claiming that they were members of the Youth Congress. “They had tailed me and they were given information by higher-ups to attack me,” Goswami said. “I want to tell you, Sonia Gandhi, you are the biggest coward in the country right now...You have no guts to face me...I will hold you personally responsible for any consequences of any attack on me. If anything were to happen to me, it is Sonia Gandhi who is responsible.” He added that the [Robert] Vadra family would also be held responsible.
The alleged attack came days after Goswami launched a full-blown attack on Congress leader Sonia Gandhi and claimed that she had orchestrated the Palghar lynching.
