Reuters Journalist’s acceptance of allegations and Arvind’s life after their allegation:
Reuters journalists accepted their mistake and claimed that it was based on misidentification, and Mr. Arvind was an innocent man and also mentioned the reason behind this misidentification. They reported that M. Gupta and Mr. Arvind have the same addresses which made them confused. But this statement wasn’t correct.
Because internet searches and google maps showed that the spying firm and Arvind’s location were not the same. These three journalists did not visit the firm’s office to verify the address and identity. Rather than this, they captured a picture of a random person (Arvind Kumar) and identified him as a spying agent. He was not a mastermind behind all these spying groups and agencies and this affected his life a lot.
Arvind’s life was devastated after this incident because he was answerable to police investigations, court, and many other authorities. He lost his business and suffered harassment in society. He moved to another town after the closure of this case.
UPDATE by December 7th, 2022:
The updates are hereby known that the media and reporters took action when the allegations reported by them were rejected by themselves. Reuters journalists Raphael Satter and his companions misidentified Sumit Gupta as Mr. Arvind which destroyed Mr. Arvind’s life. As soon as we got reports about the real scenario behind the story, new channels, and The Print media at once corrected their mistake and changed the name Mr. Arvind to Sumit Gupta.
The good thing was that Raphel Satter and his companions accepted their mistake and reported it to the news channels and The Print media which at least rebuilt Mr. Arvind’s image in society. He was an innocent man, a small business runner, who suffered a lot because of a little negligence and misidentification of the journalists.
