Goswami spends night at Alibaug Jails COVID-19 centre, to remain imprisoned till Nov 18

In an unusually long hearing of almost six hours that went till midnight, Alibaugh District Magistrate Court on Wednesday sent Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and other two accused ? Feroz Shaikh and Nitesh Sarda ? to a 14-day judicial custody till November 18 in the 2018 Anvay Naik suicide case. 

While addressing the reporters in Mumbai, Goswamis lawyer, Gaurav Parker said, It is a big victory for us. MCR (magisterial custody remand) is granted on the very first day. Police custody refused and magistrate custody has been granted. We have filed our bail application; it has been kept for arguments. It will be decided tomorrow.

Before Goswami was produced in the court, he was taken to a civil hospital for a medical check-up. Moreover, Alibaugh Court rejected allegations made by Goswami of being assaulted by the cops.

On Wednesday, Raigad Police arrested Goswami for his alleged connection to a case of abetment to suicide and was booked under section 306 (abetment of suicide) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Mumbai Police, on Wednesday, had accompanied Raigad Police for arresting Goswami. A female constable named SG Tanvade attached to the Mumbai Police, on Wednesday, registered an FIR against Goswami, his wife Samyabrata, son and two others for ?obstructing, assaulting, verbally abusing and intimidating? a police officer on duty. She also accused Samyabrata of tearing up an official arrest document of her husband at their house. The FIR was registered at the NM Joshi Marg Police Station under Sections 353, 504, 506 of IPC and Section 3 of the Damage of Public Property Act. 

Several BJP leaders and Union Ministers condemned Goswami’s arrest as a reminder of the Emergency that was imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1977. 

Union Minister Amit Shah tweeted, Congress and its allies have shamed democracy once again. Blatant misuse of state power against Republic TV and Arnab Goswami is an attack on individual freedom and the 4th pillar of democracy. It reminds us of the Emergency. This attack on free press must be and WILL BE OPPOSED.
