Mumbai: Close on the heels of demand for legal action against renowned jounalist and news anchor Arnab Goswami mounting for his comment against Sonia Gandhi, the journalist released a video, late on Wednesday night alleging Sonia Gandhi of sending goons to attack him.
Two persons, identified as Arun Borade and Pratheek Mishra have been arrested by the Mumbai police in connection to the attack.
Narrating how a duo on bike waylaid his car and tried to break the window pane of his car, Goswami said that at 12.15 am, he was driving from his studios to his home with his wife, when a duo waylaid his car at Ganpath Rao Kadam road.
Goswami said that even after continued attempts by the duo to break the window pane, he managed to enter his residential complex.
By this time, he claimed, his security personnel had caught the duo and on probing, he was told by the security personnel that the duo was youth Congress workers, who specifically told that they were sent to attack him.
Calling Sonia Gandhi 'biggest coward in India', Goswami threw an open challenge to Gandhi to attack him with all her might.
"The Youth Congress members were sent to attack me as per the order of their higher-ups. You, Sonia Gandhi are the biggest coward in this country right now. You, Sonia Gandhi tried to carry out an attack on me. You know the questions I have asked you are absolutely appropriate. You have no guts to face me," he said.
Adding that his questions against her will increase, Goswami said: "The questions I am asking you are legitimate questions. I wil personally hold you responsible for any consequences, any attack on me. I want to tell everyone if anything happens to me it is Sonia Gandhi who is responsible.....Sonia Gandhi and Vadra family cannot take my questions right now. Every fake news story of yours', I have busted. I have busted the fake story put out by your daughter Priyanka Vadra, which said in Gujarat Hindus nad Muslims are segregated. Have the courage to understand that I have busted every fake news story of yours."
"Now, go ahead, use your machinery, use your goons, use your might, use anyone you can, I am telling you Sonia Gandhi, we have the suppport of people of India. Sonia Gandhi bring it on," the journalist said concluding that he is filing a complaint with the jurisdictional police station.
