Meanwhile, she also shared a message for Arnab Goswami and said, "Let them pull your hair and assault you. For the cause of free speech, greats before us got hanged with smiles on their faces. Aazadi ka karz chukana hai."
It has been learnt that Arnab Goswami was arrested for allegedly abetting the suicide of a 53-year-old interior designer two years ago. A police official said that the architect and his mother committed suicide in 2018 over alleged non-payment of dues by Republic TV.
Speaking to Zee Media, CIU Inspector Sachin Vaje said that Arnab has been arrested under Section 306 and Section 34 of IPC.
Arnab Goswami claimed that the cops physically assaulted him while trying to arrest him. Republic TV reported around 10 policemen entered Arnab's house and "pushed and heckled Arnab demanding he come out".
It is expected that Arnab Goswami will be taken to Raigad for further questioning in connection with this case.
