NEW DELHI: The Editors Guild of India on Wednesday condemned the "sudden arrest" of Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and called upon Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to ensure that he is treated fairly and state power is not used against critical reporting by the media.

A police official said that Goswami was arrested from his residence in Mumbai on Wednesday for allegedly abetting suicide of a 53-year-old interior designer. The Guild, in a statement, said it is shocked to learn about the arrest of Goswami.

Noting that Goswami was arrested from his Mumbai residence on reportedly an abetment to suicide case, the Guild said, "We condemn the sudden arrest and find it extremely distressing."
