Indian journalist Arnab Goswami, who was arrested in connection with abetment to suicide case, ended up begging for his bail to be approved after he was shifted to Taloja jail, Mumbai.
Goswami also claimed that his “life [is] under threat”.
According to the details, the Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami was being investigated for his alleged role in the death of an architect who designed his studio.
Anvay Naik took his life in 2018 and his wife accused Mr. Goswami of not paying his fee.
However, Goswami and Republic TV network denies the allegation.
A video of the Indian journalist from an Indian news channel is making rounds on the internet in which he was seen pushing into a police van.
He was heard saying,
“I request… please let me talk. They said they won’t let me talk,” he can be heard saying in his usual panic-inducing tone. “I am telling the Indian people that my life is in danger.”
“They told me there won’t be any conversations with my lawyer, I’m requesting you all… this is an injustice against me. My police custody has been rejected, these people don’t want me to get out [of jail].
“You can see my condition, they dragged me in the morning, they tried to bring me to this jail at night,” Arnab Goswami was heard saying.
“I request the Supreme Court [of India] today to please grant me bail. There’s a lot of injustice I’m experiencing. You all are watching,” he says moments before he gets pushed away in a police van.
