Controversies of Ravish Kumar

In 2017, his brother, Brajesh Kumar Pandey was booked under the POSCO (Protection Of Children From Sexual Offences) Act for being involved in a sex-racket for which Ravish Kumar was criticized by a faction of society for not covering the incident in his news shows.   He also attracted a controversy for implicitly criticizing Arnab Goswami, a popular English TV Anchor.   Ravish Kumar has revealed that he has been receiving death threats and abusive phone calls since the arrival of the Narendra Modi Government at the centre in 2014. The constant trolling led to Ravish Kumar quitting Twitter in August 2015.
