HighlightsThe arrest of Parvez is part of the same effort. Goswami has been illegally arrested by the police for deliberate re-investigation without the permission of the Magistrate’s Court or any other court, said senior advocate Salve.
Arnab Goswami, editor-in-chief of Republic TV, was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the suicide of Alibag-based architect Anvay Naik and his mother and was remanded in judicial custody for 14 days by a local court. Goswami has moved the High Court against this and senior advocate Harish Salve today argued on behalf of Arnab through video conferencing. At the time, he accused the Thackeray government of deliberately and deliberately targeting Arnab.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh has been made a personal defendant in the petition. Therefore, senior advocate Adv. Devdutt Kamat strongly objected. While this whole case is related to Raigad police, I have been made a defendant in person. This is wrong. Therefore, Kamat has requested the High Court to direct the petitioners to delete my name. The state government has been trying for the last few days to get Arnav Goswami caught in any way. The arrest of Parvez is part of the same effort. Senior advocate Salve argued that the police had illegally arrested Goswami without the permission of a magistrate’s court or any other court.
The Supreme Court today stayed the arrest of Arnav Goswami and issued a notice to the Assembly Secretary regarding contempt of court. I am telling the High Court that there are repeated attempts by the state government to target Goswami. Everything is going on against Goswami with bad intentions and consciously, ‘said Adv. Harish Salve made the allegations in the Mumbai High Court.
Adv. A bench of Justices Sambhaji Shinde and Makrand Karnik read out the order of Alibag Chief Justice Sunaina Pingale on November 4 regarding judicial custody of a junior advocate for Harish Salve. Police appear to have reopened the investigation when an earlier A-summary report existed and was not challenged and a court order was not obtained to reopen the investigation. Nothing was seized from the accused. Some of the documents obtained from the plaintiffs. Police have not shown any connection with the accused in the May 2018 suicide incidents. How incomplete is the previous investigation? What’s wrong with that? This too has not been shown by the ruling party. Therefore, the request of the government party to give police custody to the accused cannot be supported ‘, said Adv. Harish Salve pointed out.
There was a discussion in the assembly about how Arnab Goswami’s talk is going on in the assembly and how he is insulting Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray by making a single mention. At that time, the case of Naik’s suicide will be re-investigated, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh announced in the House. Earlier, several FIRs were lodged against Goswami for his coverage of the Palghar massacre case. After that, Republic TV was named by the Mumbai Police even though it was not named in the FIR in the TRP scam case. We have also challenged him in the High Court through a writ petition and now Goswami is being targeted in the Naik case, ”Salve argued. The bench also directed that the Mumbai High Court reschedule the hearing at 12 noon tomorrow to consider Goswami’s request for interim relief.
