Mumbai: In what could be assumed as a revengeful tactic by the Congress party, Mumbai Police on Monday interrogated Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami for 12 long hours in connection with the FIR registered against him earlier.
The FIRs were registered after he questioned Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi over the Palghar lynching case in Maharashtra, where two Hindu monks were thrashed to death.
Goswami was interrogated at the NM Joshi Marg Police station and he fully cooperated with the police.
Meanwhile, the Congress youth workers, who attacked Arnab Goswami and his wife have been granted bail by Bhoiwada Court in Mumbai.
Earlier, on Sunday, Arnab had received two notices in 12 hours from the Mumbai Police seeking to interrogate him, which he said he would comply with as a law-abiding citizen.
After the interrogation, he was left from the station at around 9.30 pm and he addressed the media saying that he has fully cooperated with the police and shall continue to question Gandhi-Vadra family. He also said that he has provided all the proofs to the police and that they are satisfied with his answers.
The Supreme Court on Friday protected Goswami for three weeks from any coercive action in FIR lodged against him for making alleged defamatory statements against Gandhi. Except for one FIR lodged in Nagpur city against Goswami, the top court had stayed further proceedings in three FIRs and 11 complaints lodged in different states, including Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand.
