Republic Editor Arnab Goswami sent to 14-day judicial custody
Raigad Magistrate remanded Republic TV Managing Director and Editor in Chief Arnab Goswami to 14 days' judicial custody after a marathon five-hour hearing here late on Wednesday night.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate rejected the prosecution's plea for 14 days' police custody for Goswami, who was arrested early on Wednesday morning in a case concerning the twin suicides of architect Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik on May 5, 2018.
"The police have lost...," Goswami shouted out of a police van and displayed the V-sign after the court hearing. His team is expected to move the same court for bail on Thursday.
Meanwhile, a new FIR was filed against Arnab Goswami and two others on Wednesday for allegedly obstructing arrest and assaulting a police officer.
The case was registered against Arnab Goswami and others under Section 353, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code.
Arnab was arrested by Raigad Police from his Mumbai residence on Wednesday morning for allegedly abetting the suicide of interior designer Anvay Naik in 2018.
