He blocked the way and hit the car window several times from the driver’s side. Arnab was driving the car. When the glass did not break, they took out a bottle full of liquid and threw it on the car. He was also abusing. They are alleged to have been attacked by Youth Congress activists.

Information broadcasting minister condemned: Condemning the attack, Information Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said, ‘We condemn the attack on senior journalist Arnab Goswami. We condemn the attack on any journalist. It is against democracy. Those who preach tolerance have become equally intolerant. It is undemocratic.’
