Two men, who were arrested in connection with the alleged attack on Republic TV head Arnab Goswami, were granted bail by the Bhoiwada Court in Mumbai on Monday.
Meanwhile, earlier on Monday, Goswami went to the NM Joshi Marg police station to record his statement regarding the FIR lodged against him in Nagpur for using objectionable language against Sonia Gandhi on a TV debate.
The Supreme Court had on April 24, granted three weeks of interim protection from arrest to Goswami.
The top court in its order said that no coercive action could be taken against Goswami for three weeks, during which time he can approach the lower courts for anticipatory bail.
Goswami had claimed that he had been served two notices in 12 hours by the Mumbai police, asking him to appear for questioning, Scroll.in reported.
“Mumbai Police said it has to urgently interrogate me in connection with the complaints made by a Congress leader, about my statements on Sonia Gandhi. I have said nothing wrong. I stand by whatever I have said,” he said.
Goswami alleged that these are completely politically motivated and malicious charges against me that have been put by the Congress government in Maharashtra.
“I will make my statements clearly before the police. But I also hope and I want to tell the police commissioner, Paramvir Singh, that he should also investigate the attack on me and my wife, who is a senior editor with Republic TV…,” Goswami said.
