Mumbai, November 7
Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, arrested in an abetment of suicide case on November 4, failed to get any immediate relief on Saturday as the Bombay High Court reserved its order on his interim bail plea.
But the court said he could move the sessions court for regular bail in the meantime.
Elsewhere, the Raigad sessions court said it would hear police’s appeal against a magistrate’s order denying them the custody of Goswami and two other accused on November 9.
After hearing marathon arguments, a Division Bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik said it would not be possible to pass the order on Saturday itself.
Goswami’s lawyer Harish Salve sought his release as “ad-interim relief”, but the HC expressed inability to do so.
“We will pass the order at the earliest. The pendency of this matter does not preclude you (Goswami) from approaching the lower court seeking regular bail,” the court said. — PTI
