Supreme Court docket to listen to Arnab’s bail petition at present


Tribune News Service

New Delhi, November 10

Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court (SC) against the Bombay High Court’s order, denying him interim bail in a two-year-old abetment to suicide case.

In his petition filed in the top court, Goswami, currently lodged in the Taloja jail, has challenged the November 9 order of the HC that asked him to approach the sessions court for regular bail.

Goswami’s petition has been listed before a Vacation Bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee which will take it up at 10.30 am on Wednesday.

The HC had rejected the interim bail pleas of Goswami and two others — Feroze Shaikh and Nitish Sarda — in connection with the alleged abetment to suicide of an interior designer. Besides the Maharashtra Government, Goswami has made the Centre, Alibaug SHO, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh and Akshyata Anvay Naik as parties to his appeal.

The state government has filed a caveat in the top court to pre-empt any ex-parte order on Goswami’s petition.

Goswami was arrested on November 4 in connection with the suicide of architect-interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother in 2018. Meanwhile, SC Bar Association president Dushyant Dave has questioned the urgent listing of Arnab’s plea by the Registry.
