Arnab Goswami Arrest | Arfa Khanum Sherwani and Siddharth Varadarajan Square Off

The Republic TV editor's arrest pits defenders freedom of speech and journalistic expression against each other in a unique way.

Republic TV editor Arnab Goswami was picked up from his Mumbai residence on Wednesday morning by the Maharashtra police, in connection with a 2018 suicide abetment case. The case is related to the deaths of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik. However, this arrest pits defenders freedom of speech and journalistic expression against each other in a unique way.

The Wire’s founding editor Siddharth Varadarajan and senior editor Arfa Khanum Sherwani discuss opposing points.
