On Wednesday (November 4, 2020) the Mumbai Police arrested Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami in connection with the death of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik in Alibaug in 2018.

Anvay Naik was a 53-year-old interior designer and his mother Kumud Naik had died by suicide in May 2018. 

A suicide note purportedly written by Naik claimed that Goswami and two others owed him Rs 5.4 crore and had refused to pay it back forcing him to take him this extreme step.

The monetary transaction had taken place during the construction of the Republic TV studio. 

When Kumud Naik's mother learned about her son’s death she too killed herself.

The Alibaug police had registered a case of abetment to suicide the same month but the case was reportedly closed by the Raigad police in 2019.

However, the Maharashtra government in May this year announced that the case against Goswami and two others would be inquired into again by the state Criminal Investigation Department.

Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had announced that a re-investigation has been ordered on a fresh complaint by Adnya Naik, daughter of the architect Anvay Naik.

Adnya alleged that the Alibaug police had not investigated the alleged non-payment of dues from Arnab Goswami which she claimed drove her father and grandmother to suicide in May 2018.

A team of Alibaug police arrested Arnab Goswami from his residence.
