The Mumbai Police on Monday questioned television anchor Arnab Goswami for in connection with hate speeches allegedly made by him against Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

According to reports, Goswami came out of NM Joshi Marg police station after more than 12 hours.

Goswami entered the police station accompanied by his lawyer, according to his Republic Television. He was issued two notices last weekend to appear before the NM Joshi Marg police station in connection with FIRs filed against him by Congress party leaders and workers in different parts of the state.

Shortly before entering the precincts of the police station, Goswami gave an interview to two reporters of his own television channel.

In a media statement released here, Goswami said he would co-operate with the investigation.

“The Mumbai Police has sent me two notices in the last 12 hours saying they want to immediately interrogate me regarding my comments on Sonia Gandhi. As a law-abiding citizen, I will cooperate with the investigation, subject myself to interrogation tomorrow morning,” Goswami said.

He however accused the police department of going slow in probing the alleged attack on his car last week.

“Despite my repeated requests, the Mumbai Police has refused to mention the role of the Vadra Congress and its leadership in instigating the attack, carrying out the attack and celebrating the attack. In order to ensure that the role of the Vadra Congress in the attack is not erased, I am sharing further facts with the Mumbai Police. I am sure that the Mumbai Police will not sidestep the detailed evidence available on the role of the Vadra Congress and delete the element of conspiracy and assault in the attack,” Goswami said.
