Anvay Naik case: Bombay HC to pass order on Arnab Goswami's interim bail plea tomorrow
A notice issued late Saturday night on the official website said the bench will assemble at 3 pm on 9 November for the pronouncement of the order
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court will on Monday pronounce its order on the interim bail application filed by Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami and two others in connection with the 2018 abetment of suicide case of interior designer, Anvay Naik.
On Saturday, a division bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik after a day-long hearing in the pleas reserved its order without granting any immediate relief.
Goswami and the other accused — Feroze Shaikh and Nitish Sarda — had challenged their "illegal arrest" and sought to be released on interim bail.
A notice issued late on Saturday night on the high court's website said the bench would assemble at 3 pm on 9 November for the pronouncement of the order.
The bench on Saturday said pendency of the matter before it does not preclude the petitioners from seeking regular bail from the sessions court concerned. The court said if such bail pleas are filed, then the sessions court shall hear and decide the same in four days from filing of the plea.
Goswami and the two others were arrested by Alibaug police in Maharashtra's Raigad district on 4 November in connection with the suicide of architect-interior designer Naik and his mother in 2018 over alleged non-payment of dues by companies of the accused.
After his arrest from his Lower Parel residence in Mumbai, Goswami was taken to Alibaug, where the Chief Judicial Magistrate remanded him and the two others in judicial custody till 18 November.
Goswami is currently kept at a local school which has been designated as a COVID-19 centre for the Alibaug prison.
