Over 1,000 pages of WhatsApp conversations of former CEO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) Partho Dasgupta with Goswami were made public, Mumbai police attached this in the charge sheet in the Television Rating Points (TRP) scam investigations.

Indian National Congress questioned the centre on how Arnab had prior knowledge of the Balakot strike, three days before it took place.

Balakot airstrike was a response to the Pulwama terror attacks, where the Indian Air Force attacked terrorist camps in Balakot, Pakistan. 

Congress's Abhishek Manu Singhvi alleged that the Union government had put the lives of soldiers at risk by sharing this information.
