Congress MP Shashi Tharoor files case against journalist Arnab Goswami

Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has filed a case against journalist Arnab Goswami for damaging reputation through his news channel.

Arnab Goswami is the founder and editor-in-chief of news channel Republic TV that had recently claimed that Tharoor was closely linked to the death of his wife.

Shashi Tharoor has claimed minimum damages of Rs 2 crore in the case and it will be heard in court on 29 May. He claims that the story reported by Republic TV is false and misleading.

Tharoor's wife was found dead in the room of a five-star hotel in New Delhi in January 2014 under mysterious circumstances.
