Arnab Goswami's Complaint

Goswami has also lodged an FIR against the two men on motorcycles who allegedly attacked his car on April 22 in Mumbai. However, Goswami has stated that the NM Joshi Marg police station had delayed the registration of the FIR. Further, the police did not name the attackers to be “Youth Congress workers”, as alleged by Goswami.

The complaint by Goswami mentions that the attackers abused and shouted at him and his wife in Hindi and also threw some liquid on their car.

Further Arnab Goswami stated that in the wee hours on Thursday morning at around 03:30 am he was informed by the police that the attack by Youth Congress workers was not known and that due investigation was needed.

Goswami has clearly stated hat he suspects the attack to be "orchestrated by Sonia Gandhi and the Congress leadership and that he and his wife would not cow down by "this cowardly attack which cannot have happened without the go ahead by Sonia Gandhi."

On April 23, the Mumbai police arrested two members of the Mumbai chapter of the Indian Youth Congress for the attack on Goswami.

The accused have been identified as Prateek Mishra and Arun Borade, both officebearers of the Youth Congress in the Sion-Koliwada Assembly constituency. Mishra is the general secretary of the Sion-Koliwada Youth Congress and Borade is the president.
