In a shocking development, senior journalist Arnab Goswami and his wife were attacked by two bike-borne goons while they were returning home from studio, claims Republic TV.
As per the report, the attackers threw objects at Arnab’s car and were later caught by his security. The miscreants are being held at the NM Joshi Marg Police Station in Mumbai.
The report further claims that the attackers were sent by Indian National Congress, who have reportedly confessed about the same.
It should be noted that the Congress party and its supporters on Wednesday (22 April) launched an extensive social media campaign demanding the arrest of senior journalist Arnab Goswami over his comments criticising party president Sonia Gandhi over her silence on the brutal lynching and murder of Sadhus in Palghar.
The campaign against Arnab Goswami was supported by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot who demanded that he be sacked from Republic TV - a channel which he himself owns.
The Congress leaders and supporters are reportedly miffed over a clip of him criticising Sonia Gandhi for her alleged silence on the brutal lynching and murder of Sadhus in Palghar, Maharashtra.
