Politics India Arnab Goswami accused of abetting suicide

Mumbai: Police have registered an abetment of suicide case against Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami and two others, after a 53-year-old interior designer allegedly committed suicide, along with his mother, over “non-payment” of dues.

In a statement, Republic TV, however, denied the allegation and said that certain vested interest groups were running “a false and malicious campaign and making false statements and innuendos against the company by exploiting the tragic event”.

The case under Section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the IPC has been filed by Alibaug police in neighbouring Raigad district, Superintendent of Police Anil Paraskar said.

The other two booked along with Goswami are identified as Feroz Shaikh and Niteish Sarda, owners of two firms.

A suicide note purportedly written by Anvay Naik, managing director of Concorde Designs Private Limited, said he was forced to take his life as he was not paid his Rs 5.40-crore dues by the three.

Naik and his mother were found dead at their farmhouse in Kavir village of Alibaug taluka on Sunday. Naik was found hanging from the ceiling on the first floor while his mother’s body was found on a bed on the ground floor.

Asked about reports that a team of Alibaug police visited Mumbai on Monday, Paraskar said the team might have come to Mumbai in connection with the case.

As per the FIR, Arnab Goswami of ARG Outlier of Republic TV has allegedly not paid dues of Rs 83 lakh for the Bombay Dyeing Studio Project, while Feroz Shaikh of IcastX/Skimedia has allegedly not paid Rs 4 crore for his project at Andheri and Niteish Sarda, owner of Smart work, has allegedly not paid Rs 55 lakh for his projects at Magarpatta and Baner.

Raigad district superintendent of police Anil Paraskar said, “The suicide note by Naik mentions the names of Arnab Goswami, Feroz Shaikh and Niteish Sharda who have been held responsible for the suicide.”
