New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear tomorrow a petition filed by Republic TV Editor-in-Chief, Arnab Goswami seeking interim bail in the case of abetment to suicide of interior designer, Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik.
A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee will hear the plea tomorrow.
A day after Bombay high court rejected Arnab Goswami’s interim bail, the Republic TV Editor-In-Chief on Tuesday approached the Supreme Court challenging the order. The high court had rejected Goswami's plea while asking him to move Sessions court for regular bail.
On Monday, the high court had rejected pleas of Goswami and two others for interim bail in an alleged abetment to suicide case registered against them in 2018 and said they could move bail applications before a sessions court for a decision within four days. The three had then approached the sessions court in Alibag.
Goswami, Shaikh and Sarda were arrested on November 4 after police in Raigad reopened a case involving the death of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik at their home in Alibag in May 2018.
According to police, the Naiks committed suicide over alleged non-payment of dues by Goswami’s channel and companies of the two other men.
Earlier this week, Goswami was shifted to Taloja Central Prison in Navi Mumbai on Sunday morning from a makeshift Covid-19 quarantine centre in Alibaug for allegedly using a cellphone.
