Demand grows for Arnab Goswami to apologise after Delhi court acquits man that his TV channel dubbed as ‘pervert’ four years ago

A Delhi court last week acquitted a Delhi man of molestation charges four years after he was widely dubbed as ‘pervert’ and ‘Delhi Ka Darinda’ by TV channels. Netizens have now sharpened their attack against Arnab Goswami, whose previous TV channel Times Now had labelled him a ‘pervert’ after a Delhi girl, Jasleen Kaur, sensationally accused Sarvjeet Singh Bedi of molestation at a traffic signal in Delhi in 2015.

Taking to Facebook Sarvjeet, now 28, wrote, “The Verdict is out. I am ACQUITTED! I wish to thank Waheguru ji for keeping His eye on me, and all of you for your tremendous support. My friends and well-wishers made it possible. Most of all, my mother who stood by me like a pillar. Her faith in me was the major driving force that made me see each day with courage. And of course, Shikha Khanduja Kaul who has guided me through this. She is like an elder sister I never had. The book she has written on my case will be out soon!”

Four years ago, Jasleen Kaur had taken to Twitter to post a photo of Singh alleging that the latter passed lewd comments at her.



However, she moved to Canada soon after the hearing in her molestation case began as she was found to be absent during the court hearings on most occasions.

Now that the court has acquitted Singh of molestation charges, netizens have begun asking for an apology from Goswami, who was the editor-in-chief of Times Now when the TV channel ran a campaign against Singh through its coverage.





Singh also wrote in his Facebook post that one Shikha Khanduja Kaul has written a book on his case. The book, according to him, will be out soon.

Singh has said on several occasions that the episode adversely impacted his life as not only did he lose his job after Kaur’s allegations but failed to get any job in the future because of being demonsied by Indian TV channels.

P.S. Janta Ka Reporter too had interviewed Jasleen Kaur soon after her social media post triggered a full-blown controversy. We had also invited Singh for a similar interview, which he had politely declined.

  1. first of all, take the problem to its logical conclusion. Girls must not allow boys/men to evetease. make a police complaint ASAP.

  2. Good decision to complent to police but not to social media. If you believe on police then should not go thru media. If police does not take action then should have gone with media.

  3. Element like Arnab should not have any place in a civilized society. Taking full advantage of our low rate of consciousness such element thrive. Like corrupt to finger tips politicians.

  4. The problems with Mr. Arnab Goswami is he floats with the waves of excitement. His appearance on that moment of time is:-“I caught the culprit by hand & now my time to establish his/her crimes!”
    A seasoned journalist must float with the reasoning of unwarranted arguments falling unknowingly into the situation of controversy.
    So, Arnab Goswami should apologize to the boy whose entire world was changed due to charge which could not stand the tested time in the court.

  5. We do not know whether the court acquitted him because the complainant had not followed up or because of lack of further evidence. It was just her word or complaint lodged without evidence.
    However, Arnab has to not only give a written apology but also give a spot to Bedi on primetime asking him to narrate his woes that followed later.
