New Delhi, November 11
The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted interim bail to Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami in an abetment to suicide case, saying it would be a travesty of justice if personal liberty of a person was curtailed like this.
“We are of the considered view that the High Court was in error in rejecting the applications for the grant of interim bail,” a vacation Bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee said.
In its interim order, the court ordered the Maharashtra authorities to release the journalist forthwith. The Bench also granted interim bail to co-accused Feroz Mohammad Shaikh and Neetish Sarda, “subject to each of them executing a personal bond of Rs 50,000 to be executed before the jail superintendent”. — TNS
