Arnab's arrest evokes mixed reaction

Guwahati: Mixed reactions are pouring in from different quarters after the Mumbai police arrested Republic TV editor in chief Arnab Goswami in connection with a 2 year old case.

People,  mostly, in social media have supported the arrest saying that the journalists are not above the law.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, senior cabinet Himanta Biswa Sarma have called it an attack on democracy.

State BJP has also vehemently condemned his arrest.

Goswami was arrested from his residence in Mumbai early in the morning in connection with a case where an interior designer and his mother committed suicide alleging non receipt of Rs 5 crore from Goswami and his sides.

The police then registered the case.  But could not gather much evidence against the journalists.
