Nagpur Police has registered an FIR against Arnab Goswami (Editor-in-Chief, Republic TV) following a complaint by senior congress leader and Mahatrashtra Energy Minister Dr Nitin Raut. The complaint has been filed with respect to Goswami’s recent remarks on Congress President Sonia Gandhi during a live TV debate on Palghar mob lynching.
Dr Raut told ANI, “Using derogatory language against someone is just not acceptable. He also tried to insult Congress President Sonia Gandhi. He has lost his mental stability.”
Goswami has been booked by Nagpur’s Sadar Police under sections 153, 153-A, 153-B, 295-A, 298, 500, 504, 505(2), 506, 120-B and 117 of the IPC.
