The Mumbai Police, who forcefully pushes Arnab Goswami then says, “With legal capacity, we are inside. Why are you closing the door.” as they tried to drag him before Arnab managed to sit down. 

“Are you coming with us? I am DYSP. I am here to arrest you. You have to co-operate with me. We are taking him to Raigad, Alibaug,” says one police officer who identifies himself as Pravin Patil. 

A lady officer can be seen confronting the wife of Arnab Goswami and forcing her to sign some papers.

Senior Editor Samyabrata Ray Goswami, wife of Arnab Goswami was also held by the police officers and then told to sign some papers. The Mumbai Police also forcefully tries to block her from recording the video. The Mumbai Police can also be seen snatching papers from Samayabrata’s hands and were heard saying, “You just have to sign it”.

“I am the Editor of Republic TV, you have physically assaulted me, is this correct? Sachin, you tell me. I will co-operate but I won’t accept physical assault. I will seek advice of my lawyers. Maintain social distancing,” Goswami said.

Interestingly, one of the cops, who was seen warning Arnab Goswami was not wearing an official uniform, was confronted by Samyabrata Goswami, who questioned the lack of a tag on the DYSP. “He doesn’t even have a tag. We don’t know if he is a legit police officer,” she asked. 

In the video, Arnab Goswami can be seen saying, “my son was beaten-up”. In the video, two elderly people can be seen urging Mumbai Police with folded hands requesting them to give a proper explanation before the arrest.

After a series of warning by Mumbai Police to Arnab Goswami asking him to simply fall-in-line, the Mumbai Police then forcefully drags him out of his residence and makes an arrest.
