Republic TV promoter Arnab Goswami was sent by a court in Maharashtra yesterday to 14 days of judicial custody. Mr Goswami was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday from his home in Mumbai in connection with the suicide of an architect, Anvay Naik, and his mother in 2018. The case was closed under the previous government but was reopened recently after appeals from the architect’s family. A court in Alibaug rejected the police’s demand for 14-day custody but also dismissed Mr Goswami’s charge that he had been physically assaulted while being arrested, an allegation he made several times in the day. A 13-minute video shot during the arrest shows policemen pleading with the editor to cooperate as he says he has been assaulted. Eventually the policemen drag him away.
