I’m guessing every Indian citizen and his/her dog/cat/hamster now knows that Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV, told a big fat lie. In case you were sleeping, here goes: a couple of years ago at a public event, Goswami related Rajdeep Sardesai’s anecdote of a rather scary confrontation with a Hindutva mob while covering the 2002 Gujarat pogrom. However, Goswami pretended that it had happened to him and held forth in his charming bombastic style while cameras were rolling.
A year after a 39-year-old perfumer was found murdered in her flat in Goa, there are several questions about the official version of the crime that have been left unanswered. What has further raised the possibility of the version being a cover-up is the fierce secrecy pervading Ghurde’s social circles. Will justice prevail?
