'If we don't defend constitutional freedom as a court, who will do it': SC

New Delhi: Republic TV chief editor Arnab Goswami's interim bail plea is under trial in the Supreme Court. In the meantime, senior advocate Harish Salway, on behalf of Arnab Goswami, has sought an investigation into the case from the CBI. Arnab had challenged the Bombay High Court's refusal to grant bail in the Supreme Court. During the hearing, Judge Chandchud said, "If we do not protect constitutional freedom as a court, who will do it? If a region deliberately targets a person, there is a need to give a strong message. Our democracy is exceptionally resilient."

During the controversy over Arnab's bail plea, Harish Salway said that ignoring malice and facts, the powers of the state are being misused. The case was filed in May 2018. Powers are being misused to re-investigate. The Bombay High Court had asked interior designer Andya Naik to go to the local court for relief, refusing to grant interim bail to Arnab and two others in the case of allegedly inciting him to suicide.

Alibagh police want police remand of Arnab. In a demand, the prosecution's special governance advocate P. Gharat said that the arrest of Arnab was necessary, as his name was in the letter written before the suicide of the other. If the arrest is not necessary, the magistrates do not sanction interrogation in judicial remand.
