MUMBAI: The Bombay high court on Thursday adjourned the plea of Republic TV editor-in chief Arnab Goswami who had challenged his “illegal arrest”.
The Bombay high court asked Goswami to make an original informant a party to his petition.
Arnab Goswami was arrested on Wednesday in a 2018 case of abetment of suicide of an interior designer.
Earlier today, Goswami had petitioned the high court challenging his “illegal arrest” and seeking quashing of the FIR lodged against him by Alibaug police in Maharashtra.
Goswami was arrested from his residence at Lower Parel in Mumbai for allegedly abetting the suicide of interior designer Anvay Naik, and was taken to the Alibaug police station in neighbouring Raigad district.
He was later produced before a magistrate’s court in Alibaug which remanded him in judicial custody till November 18.
Goswami is currently kept at a local school which has been designated as a Covid-19 centre for the Alibaug prison.
