SummaryTV channel alleges editors' arrest is a 'nefarious gameplan designed for something else'.

timing of the arrest, Handoo said while the FIR was filed on October 2, the arrests were made yesterday at a time when the two editors were at the "beck and call" of police and cooperating in investigations.

"Police say they have the forensic report. Then why don't they file chargesheet directly. What is the need for arrest?In normal case, they would not have been arrested," he claimed.
