Arnab Threatened My Father Saying “You Will Not Get Money, No Matter What You Do”: Adnya Naik

Syed Sujeel Ahmed | India Tomorrow

BENGALURU—“I am Arnab. I will show you what I can do…; You being a Maharashtrian, being in Maharashtra, you can’t do anything to me,” He used to say things like that, told Anvay Naik’s daughter Adnya Naik in an interview to the Caravan Magazine on November 5. The interview was taken after Arnab Goswami, promoter and editor-in-chief of Republic TV, was arrested in the abetment to suicide case of Anvay Naik, father of Adnya.

More than two years back, Anvay Naik, the managing director, and his mother, Kumud Naik, the board member of the Concorde Designs Private Limited committed suicide in May 2018 and reportedly left a suicide note that accused Arnab and two others of non-payment of dues for the services their firm rendered to ARG Outlier Media Private Limited that runs Republic channels. In the suicide note, Anvay reportedly wrote, “I hold them responsible for our death.”

The family of Anvay had discussions to lodge a police complaint but got scared due to the alleged threats from Arnab. Adnya claimed that Arnab told her father, “Your career will be destroyed and your daughter’s too.” Adnya is an architect who was helping her father in the project while simultaneously working for her internship. 

Adnya further claimed that Arnab would ask for changes in design if he did not like something aesthetically, the cost of which would escalate. She said that the original dues were Rs 1.2 crore but later cut down to Rs 83 lakhs. She said, “My father cried and kept cutting it down and finally made Rs 83 lakhs, which was also not paid.”

The project was started in December 2016 and got completed in March or April 2017, she said.

In the interview, Adnya claimed that the situation came to a point when her father literally started begging and wrote emails saying everyone in the family is under pressure and depressed.

Police Warned Us Not To Complain

Adnya told the magazine that when they went to file an FIR in Alibaug police station in Raigad district, the police did not want to file the FIR. She says that the police got scared after seeing Arnab’s name in the complaint. “The investigating officer, Suresh Warade, threatened me and my mom and told, ‘See, this is the question of your life. High profile people are involved. Think about it. My advice is that you should not do this.’”
