Anway Naik suicide case: Arnab Goswami gave statement in Mumbai, says Maharashtra minister – Times of India

MUMBAI: The intervention of a senior cabinet member in the previous government made it possible for Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami to record his statement in the suicide abetment case in Mumbai instead of Raigad, said state home minister Anil Deshmukh.
Goswami’s statement in the case should have been recorded in Raigad where Anway Naik committed suicide in 2018 and where the case was filed. But this senior leader ensured that investigating officer Anil Paraskar took the statement in the office of the joint commissioner of police in the Mumbai police commissionerate, said Deshmukh. “Goswami’s statement was recorded on May 30, 2018, while instructions were given to Paraskar on May 26,” he said.
