Mumbai: A fresh FIR has been lodged against the Editor-In-Chief of Republic Media Network, Arnab Goswami on Wednesday evening, for allegedly assaulting woman police who came with a team at his residence to arrest him.

It is also reported that Arnab was assaulted after he was arrested by the Mumbai police on Wednesday.

His lawyer, who was with him at the Alibaug Police Station, said that he suffered an injury after heckled by police.

The lawyer said, “Family members were pushed, his house was cordoned off for three hours. He has an abrasion on his left hand, he already had an existing injury in his hand which was tried to tear apart. His arrest was not informed to his wife but his arrest punchnama says she was informed. He was pulled by his belt, and was beaten on the back of his spine. He appeals to citizens of India to support him,” as quoted by RepublicWorld.Com

After a while, the Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and advocate Rahul Narwekar said, “See this incident with Arnab Goswami is destructive for a democracy. Today media is considered a fourth pillar, but this government has attempted to shake it. They have reopened a case not because it was required but because they wanted vendetta. This is revenge, and this investigation is harmful to democracy.”

The Maharashtra police arrested Arnab on Wednesday morning after the latter barged into the journalist’s residence and assaulted him. The police, then, took him to Raigad Police Station and announced that he has been arrested for the charges of abetment of suicide in the Anvay Naik case in 2018 – which was closed earlier.
