Former Infosys CFO and current Aarin Capital Chairman Mohandas Pai on Thursday strongly condemned the "violent attack" on Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and his wife and Republic Editor Samyabrata Ray Goswami by Congress goons.

Taking to Twitter, Pai urged his followers to condemn this violent attack and "demand the prosecution of the assailants" Calling the attack "truly shocking" he said that the rule of law and protection of all citizens should prevail.

'No room for violence in our society'

Along with the message, Pai posted a video as well in which he said, "There is no room for violence in our society. My prayers and all of our prayers are with Arnab Goswami. Stay safe and we are all with you in this time."

Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami was attacked on his way home from Republic's studios in Mumbai at quarter-past-midnight on Wednesday night. The physical attack was carried out by Congress goons who confessed to having been sent by party higher-ups.

The attack took place barely 500 metres away from Arnab's house as he was driving back following his show, with his wife  - Republic TV Editor Samyabrata Ray Goswami - in their Toyota Corolla. Masked goons on a bike overtook and blocked Arnab's car and proceeded to hurl bottles along with abuses after taking a good hard look to identify him in the front seat.
