Defamation, Arnab Goswami, Keralites

Kochi : An FIR has been filed against Republic TV editor in chief and journalist Arnab Goswami for insulting Keralites in a late night debate on his channel during the Kerala floods.

CPM former Kannur District Secretary and People Law Foundation President P Sasi filed the case after the news anchor called the Keralites a group" the "most shameless bunch of Indians I have ever seen', during a debate.

The context of his statement : the Kerala floods, and the ongoing debate as to whether the UAE actually offered Rs 700 crore to the state, which the Centre then turned down.

Earlier, the organisation had sent a notice to the Republic TV and filed a defamation suit of Rs 10 Crore into the CM's disaster Relief Fund. However, the journalist did not respond to the allegations or notice, which prompted Mr Sasi to file the case.
