The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Republic TV chief-editor Arnab Goswami in a 2018 abetment to suicide case. He and two others were arrested last week in connection with the suicide of architect Anvay Naik and his mother.
A two-judge bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee questioned Maharashtra government over the 2018 abetment to suicide case against Arnab Goswami and said that it would be a travesty of justice if personal liberty of a person is curtailed like this.
The hearing comes two days after the Bombay High Court turned down Mr Goswami's plea against his arrest and the reopening of the case.
On November 4, Goswami was arrested in connection with the 2018 suicide case. Later, he was sent to 14-day judicial custody by a lower court later that day.
