The SC on Thursday refused to entertain Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami’s petition against summons issued by the Mumbai Police.

A Bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud asked him to approach the Bombay High Court.

“One must have faith in the Bombay High Court,” said Justice Chandrachud.

Senior advocate Harish Salve, representing Goswami, chose to withdraw the petition following the top court’s refusal.

The Bench took exception to the Mumbai Police chief making statements in the media.

“The way the Mumbai Police Commissioner has been giving statements in the press is not appropriate,” it said.

In their affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the Mumbai Police opposed Republic TV’s demand for a CBI probe, saying the news channel can’t decide, which agency should investigate the matter.

Maintaining that an investigation into a crime can’t be a matter of free speech, the affidavit accused Goswami of threatening and intimidating witnesses by his programmes.
