Court to hear cops' plea on Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami's judicial remand on November 9
Arnab Goswami was arrested on Wednesday morning from his Lower Parel residence in Mumbai in connection with the case.
Accusing the Mumbai police of custodial torture, Goswami in his bail plea also said that he was hit by a police officer's boot and suffered a six-inch-deep gash on his left hand
Goswami is presently lodged in a school in Alibaug which is designated as a COVID-19 centre for the Alibaug jail.
A bench comprising justice S S Shinde and M S Karnik observed that it cannot pass interim order without hearing the complainant and the state.
An editorial in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana' said it was surprising that central ministers along with state BJP leaders should say there was an 'Emergency-like situation' in Maharashtra.
In his petition, Goswami has challenged his 'illegal arrest' and sought an urgent order of stay in the investigation into the case and also a direction to the police to release him immediately.
