Mumbai: Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and his wife Samyabrata Ray were attacked while they on their way back to home on Wednesday after midnight. The physical attack was unleashed unto him by the Congress goons who have confessed that they were sent by party higher-ups.
“The attack took place at Ganpatrao Kadam Marg, just a short distance away from Arnab’s house, as he and his wife – Republic TV Editor Samyabrata Ray Goswami – were driving back in their Toyota Corolla,” reported Republic TV.
“The goons, who used their bike to block Arnab’s car and took a good hard look to identify him in the front seat before launching their attack, were caught by Arnab’s security and are now in custody of the Mumbai Police. They confessed to Arnab’s security that they had been sent by Congress party higher-ups to teach him a lesson,” Republic said.
In a video message post the attack, Goswami has accused Congress President Sonia Gandhi for the cowardly attack after Republic TV exposed all the lies being furnished by the Congress party.
