New Delhi: A few hours after Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and his wife and Republic TV Editor Samyabrata Ray Goswami were attacked physically at 12.15 a.m. on Wednesday, Congress leader Alka Lamba took to Twitter and expressed her celebration mode over the incident.
She praised the Congress Youth Wing, following the attackers confession to Arnab’s Mumbai police security personnel.
Alka Lamba in a tweet posted at 3 AM on Thursday wrote, “Long live youth Congress”.
युवा काँग्रेस जिंदाबाद 🙂 🇮🇳👍.

Arnab in his written complaint to the Mumbai Police mentioned about Lamba’s tweet and said, “Congress leader Alka Lamba’s celebration of the attack on me further reinforces my belief that this attack on me and my wife Samyabrata Ray has been orchestrated by Sonia Gandhi and her close circle of Congress leaders at a time when we have raised questions about her accountability in several cases,” reported Republic TV.
The two goons have been arrested and an FIR has been registered against them by NM Joshi Marg Police station under sec 341 (Punishment for wrongful restraint) and 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) of IPC.
