MUMBAI: Two men were arrested on Thursday for allegedly attacking TV anchor and the editor-in-chief and owner of Republic TV Arnab Goswami and his wife while they were on their way home in the early hours of the day.
An FIR has been registered under section 341 and section 504 of the Indian Penal Code, police said, according to news agency ANI.
The incident took place on Ganpatrao Kadam Marg, when Goswami was returning from a studio located in Lower Parel, police told a news agency.
The attackers, who were motorcycle-borne, had overtook Goswami's car, stopped it and one of them allegedly tried to break the vehicle's glass window by repeatedly hitting it with his hands. The attackers were carrying a bottle of ink which they threw on his car, police said.
Later, Goswami's security guards, who were behind in another car, caught hold of the two persons and handed them over to the N M Joshi Marg Police.
Goswami had later released a video from his parking lot after the attack and said that he was told by his security guards that the attackers were "Youth Congress workers". However, there was no confirmation of the same by either police or the youth outfit.
In his primetime debate show, Goswami made remarks aimed at Congress President Sonia Gandhi during a discussion on Palghar incident in which three persons, including two seers, were lynched. He faced severe criticism for his comments.
Senior Congress leaders, including chief ministers, slammed Goswami, with the party's chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala alleging that it was "deeply disgraceful that PM & BJP eulogize this brand of TV anchors".
