Citing personal liberty, Supreme Court grants bail to Arnab Goswami

New Delhi, November 11

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted interim bail to Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami in an abetment to suicide case, saying it would be a travesty of justice if personal liberty of a person was curtailed like this.

“We are of the considered view that the High Court was in error in rejecting the applications for the grant of interim bail,” a vacation Bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee said.

‘Bombay High Court erred’

If state govts target individuals, they must realise that there is apex court to protect the liberty of citizens. The Bombay HC was wrong in denying bail

In its interim order, the court ordered the Maharashtra authorities to release the journalist forthwith. The Bench also granted interim bail to co-accused Feroz Mohammad Shaikh and Neetish Sarda, “subject to each of them executing a personal bond of Rs 50,000 to be executed before the jail superintendent”. — TNS
