“Petitioner has time and again encouraged and used the platform of its channel to foster
communal harmony” Arnab Ranjan Goswami submits under para 12 of his petition to quesh multiple FIRs against him.
Supreme court earlier this month had then extended Goswami’s protection from arrest for another three weeks, with orders to the Mumbai Police to grant him security against FIRs filed against him for hate speech, criminal defamation and promoting enmity between religious groups.
Solicitor general Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, had told the bench that this is a “peculiar case” as Goswami and the police were accusing each other of “pressure”. Therefore, the court must look at the possibility of having an independent investigation agency like CBI to probe the cases, he said
Court however refused to transfer from the Maharashtra Police to the CBI the investigation against Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami.
Consequently, an attempt by Central Government to intervene in the matter has failed.

Sunaina Vinod, an acquaintance of Anvay Naik shares “Anvay Naik’s suicide wasn’t a shock to Design & Construction Industry. He was my client for 6 years & we knew how he picked Turnkey jobs & didn’t deliver projects in time. Hence lost credibility. No projects & increasing debt lead Mr. Naik & his mother to suicide. Get your facts right.”
