Mumbai: Republic Media Network’s Assistant Vice President Ghanshyam Singh walked out of Taloja jail on Sunday, 26 days after being arrested in the fake TRP case.
He spoke to Republic Media Network’s Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and thanked him and the viewers of the network for their relentless support.
Ghanshyam Singh then revealed that during his custody he was beaten by a police officer because he was firm on his stand that he has not done anything illegal.
“I am fine, I am very much strong sir. They wanted to know something which we have not done. They wanted to persuade me and wanted me to commit that we have done something illegal. The truth was there and it was the ultimate thing to prove that we have not done anything. We are very strong. We won today and thank you very much for that,” he said.
When asked by Arnab whether the police had tried to pressurize him or harass him in any way, Ghanshyam said, “Yes, they did. They tried to put pressure on me to commit something but since I have not done anything, I denied it strongly. On the very second day of my police custody, they beat me actually. I kept denying whatever they wanted me to say and since I kept on saying that, they beat me. Only once they did so, on the second day. He was some (API) Assistant Police Inspector. I forgot his name as he came only for one day for interrogation.”
