The Bombay High Court is hearing a habeas corpus petition moved by Republic TV Editor in Chief Arnab Goswami challenging his arrest by the Maharashtra Police for his role in abeting a suicide.

A Bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik is hearing the matter.

Yesterday, the High Court issued notice in the case and directed the parties to exchange their pleadings.

A plea moved by Adnya Naik is also before the Court. Adnya is the daughter of the person who died by suicide in 2018, in connection with which Goswami was arrested on Wednesday morning.

The suicide case had been closed by the Mumbai Police earlier citing lack of evidence against the accused by virtue of an “A” summary. Earlier this year, the Maharashtra Government had reopened the case investigation, leading to Goswami's arrest on Wednesday.
