A troll on Editor-In-Chief of The Times Now, Arnab Goswami goes viral on Tuesday by Reddit India (/r/india/) showing a red Lamborghini with Arnav and a comment that cops detained him as he was driving the car. Later, Times of India tweeted from its official account,”Sorry trolls it’s not Arnab Goswami’s car nor has he been stopped by cops.”

“The vehicle was intercepted at the Worli exit of the sea link and the driver was arrested. He was not found to be drunk at the time of the incident,” said deputy commissioner of police S Jayakumar, Zone III.

Also the  news source reported, “a Juhu businessman was arrested on Sunday for rash driving and risking other people’s lives after Times Now editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami complained to the police. 

Goswami told the police that the person drove a Lamborghini at a very high speed on the Bandra-Worli sea. The police then registered an FIR and arrested Samvit Ramesh Tara (39), a Juhu resident. 

Police said Tara, who has a home decor showroom at Lower Parel, wanted to buy a Lamborghini and contacted a showroom at Prabhadevi and took the high-end car for a test drive. 

Following an alert from Goswami, the police arrested the Juhu businessman.”

Furthermore, after the TOI tweeted, the Reddit India shared a post with the screenshot of firm’s tweet in congratulating themselves. The post said, “Congrats /r/India, we’re trolls for doing what Times Now “journalists” do for a living. They even credit the twitter account on the bottom.”
