Mumbai, November 12

A sessions court here has adjourned till November 23 the hearing on the pre-arrest bail plea of Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami and his wife in a case registered against them by Mumbai Police for allegedly assaulting a woman police officer.

Their lawyer Shyam Kalyankar said the plea could not be heard on Thursday as the judge did not preside.

“The anticipatory bail plea of Goswami and his wife was simply adjourned till November 23,” he said.

“We did not seek any interim protection from arrest on Thursday as we are waiting for the detailed order of the Supreme Court (passed on Wednesday granting bail to Goswami in another matter),” Kalyankar said.

The apex court on Wednesday granted interim bail to Goswami in a case of alleged abetment to suicide of interior designer Anvay Naik in 2018.

Goswami, who was arrested on November 4, was released from the Taloja prison in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday evening.

Last week, an FIR was registered against Goswami, wife Samyabrata Ray Goswami and their son at NM Joshi Marg police station in central Mumbai for allegedly assaulting a woman police officer when a police team went to his house to arrest him on November 4.

Currently, Goswami and his wife have filed an anticipatory bail plea in the assault case.

They have been booked under Sections 353 (assault to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC and under the Damage to Public Property Act. PTI
