Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami and his wife were attacked past midnight on Wednesday in Mumbai while they were driving home from their studios, a complaint filed by the television journalist said.
In his complaint to the police, Arnab stated that the attack took place on Ganpatrao Kadam Marg at around 12.15 am on Thursday, while he and his wife were travelling back home from the Republic TV studio located in Mumbai’s Lower Parel area.
“Two men on a motorcycle overtook my car and tried to identify who was driving. They then blocked the path of my car with their two-wheeler. The pillion rider hit the right side driver window several times and after realising that the car windows were up, the pillion rider removed a liquid bottle from his pocket and threw liquid on the driver’s side of the car where I was sitting,” Goswami said in his complaint.
