Arnab Goswami asked to appear before Court in defamation suit filed by Shashi Tharoor

Arnab Goswami has been attracting threats from Congress leaders and those associated with them. Robert Vadra was reported to have sent a legal notice to the journalist for his reportage of the 'Vadra papers'.

The Chief Judicial Magistrate, Thiruvananthapuram, has directed Arnab Goswami of Republic TV to appear in Court on the 28th of February in the criminal defamation suit filed against him by senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, LiveLaw reported.

Tharoor had filed a defamation case against Goswami for the latter’s reportage of events related to the mysterious death of the Congress leader’s third wife, Sunanda Pushkar. Goswami had apparently furthered the ‘murder angle’ while reporting on the case. Tharoor had then responded with his now famous/infamous ‘farrago’ tweet. He had then proceeded to file a defamation suit against the reputed journalist in May 2017.

Arnab Goswami has been attracting threats from Congress leaders and those associated with them. Robert Vadra was reported to have sent a legal notice to the journalist for his reportage of the ‘Vadra papers’. Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha had also threatened him on Twitter after he was appointed a member of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library Society, the body that controls the Teen Murti Estate.
