Arnab Goswami, firebrand television news anchor and Republic TV founder has been arrested by Mumbai police on Wednesday.

As being reported Arnab Goswami was arrested from his residence in Mumbai today for allegedly abetting the suicide of a 53-year-old interior designer. While Goswami has denied the allegation.

According to the Senior Mumbai police officer Sanjay Mohit,  the charges against Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami are linked to the deaths of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother, which police concluded to be suicide.

He further added that a suicide note has been found by the police, and determined to have been written by Naik stating that he took his life because Goswami and two others owed him a huge sum of money and had refused to pay it back.

His arrest is being  critisied by several Union ministers and senior BJP leaders and called it an “attack on freedom of press”.

Goswami is known for supporting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his nationalist policies in his news shows, often yelling down at the opponents.
