🔸Arnab has a Y category security
🔸His security guards caught the attackers, who then talked at great length & were let off?😂
🔸Why were they not handed over to the Police?

Verification: The metadata of the video shared by people regarding the news video of the late-night attack on Arnab Goswami and his wife, on 22nd April 2020 is not the actual reading
Metadata is accurate only when it is extracted from the original file. But when the file is shared on any platform, metadata is modified based on the platform where the video is being shared. So there will be a different reading to the metadata as from that of the original file. This is what has happened in the video of the attack on Arnab Goswami. Also the time showed in metadata2go.com was in GMT. To get converted IST, 5:30 hours need to be added to GMT.

The news about the late-night attack by goons on Arnab Goswami and his wife is everywhere. The news is shared by many people saying that it’s not real-time as the metadata of the video shows that the recording is done earlier than the incident and is fake shared by Arnab Goswami. People on Twitter claimed that the video was made at 8:17 PM- 22 Apr 2020.
In a conversation with BoomLive, Gaurav Pandhi clarified that the metadata was of the video published by Republic on Twitter. He claimed to have downloaded the Twitter video and then run it through the website.
It was commented by people that the tweets supporting Arnab Goswami were posted before Republic announced the incident. According to BoomLive, the attack was announced 40 minutes before the tweet was made. Check the screenshot shared by Boom Live from Republic TV

Arnab Goswami in his video says that it was “12:15 AM”. The tweet was there on tweeter at 1:47 AM- 23 April 2020

As a fellow journalist and someone who respects you as a brother #ArnabGoswami I stand rock solid next to you. Let the enemies of our nation within our nation attack with all their might. The truth will always prevail, we will prevail. India shields us. Their prayers and love.

I condemn the violent attack on Mr Arnab Goswami & His Wife in Mumbai!
This is not how street thuggery can take over Freedom of Expression.
Maharashtra Government needs to seriously look into this.
The perpetrators should not go unpunished!

The metadata created is from the time when the video was posted on twitter. The metadata is from the time published and not when the actual video was shot. YouTube or Twitter reflect the metadata of video when it is uploaded and not when it is shot. The people sharing the viral metadata to the video uploaded is not the actual metadata of the video but it’s from the time the video was uploaded on social media. Taking the same metadata into consideration the post started going viral to convey that the video shared by Arnab Goswami is fake as the time of the attack and the upload of the video is not matching according to people who immediately started researching about the incident shared on Republican.
