Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami was attacked on his way home from Republic’s studios in Mumbai on Wednesday night. The physical attack was carried out by Congress goons, who confessed to having been sent by party higher-ups.
The attack took place barely 500 metres away from Arnab’s house as he was driving back following his show, with his wife in their Toyota Corolla. Masked goons overtook Arnab’s car and hurled bottles, along with abuses.
Arnab’s security caught the attackers, who are now in custody. They confessed to Arnab’s security that they had been sent by the Congress. This comes after Arnab had questioned Congress president Sonia Gandhi in his debate mere hours earlier.
