New Delhi: NBA condemns the manner in which Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV, was arrested by the Raigarh Police. According to the police, Goswami was arrested in a 2018 abetment to suicide case. NBA is dismayed in the manner in which he was arrested. Even though NBA does not agree with his type of journalism, we denounce retaliatory action, if any by the authorities against a media editor. Media is not above the law but due process must be followed.
NBA appeals to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to ensure that Goswami is treated fairly and state power is not misused for vendetta.
