Amritsar, April 25

The local police have booked Republic TV channel editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami under different sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act for allegedly using derogatory words against Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi.

The case was registered on the complaint of youth Congress leader Aditya Datti, son of MLA Sunil Dutti.

Neeraj Kumar, SHO Rambagh police station, said in the complaint against the Republic TV editor in chief he alleged that the anchor not only used objectionable remarks against Sonia Gandhi but also tried to disrupt communal harmony by provoking people. A case under Sections 153-A, 153-B, 295-A, 504, 505 of the IPC and Sections 69 and 69-A of the IT Act was registered against him.

A number of FIRs have been registered against Arnab throughout the country. The Supreme Court, however, has granted a relief of three weeks from any coercive action against him in connection with the FIRs.
