Maharashtra govt must ignore Arnab's taunts: SC

 

The Supreme Court is hearing the interim bail plea filed by  Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami in the 2018 abetment to suicide case.

Goswami had moved the apex court yesterday challenging the November 9 order of the Bombay High Court refusing him interim bail. 

Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Arnab Goswami in Supreme Court, asks for CBI inquiry into the matter. 

The Supreme Court said it would be travesty of justice if personal liberty of a person is curtailed. 

"If we as a constitutional court do not lay down law and protect liberty then who will?... If a state targets an individual like that, a strong message needs to be sent out... Our democracy is extraordinarily resilient," says Justice Chandrachud of the Supreme Court. 

SC also asks the Maharashtra government whether Arnab Goswami's case requires custodial interrogation, says "we are dealing with issue of personal liberty." 

The SC says our democracy is extraordinarily resilient, Maharashtra government must ignore all this (Arnab's taunts on TV).
