New Delhi (ILNS): The Bombay High Court has issued notice to the Police officers who had filed the closure report in the suicide of interior designer Anvay and his mother Kumud Naik in 2018.

On Saturday, the bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik had also given (reported in India Legal) liberty to Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami to file a bail plea in a lower court, directing the court to decide on his bail plea, if filed, within four days. The high court has reserved its own order in the habeas corpus and bail plea filed by Arnab.

The court will also hear a plea filed by Adnya Naik, daughter of the architect Anvay Naik, who along with his mother Kumud Naik, had committed suicide at their bungalow in Alibaug, Raigad, on May 5, 2018.

Adnya Naik has sought a re-investigation into the case or for transferring it to an independent agency. The plea relies upon an alleged suicide note found next to the bodies of the deceased.

“Police have not investigated the offence properly and have filed a false, fake, fabricated and botched up final report just with an intention to help the accused persons,” contended Adnya in her plea.

Appearing for Anvay Naik’s daughter Adnya Naik, advocate Subodh Desai sought re-investigation in the matter and action against the officers “who did a miserable job of investigation” in the first instance.

The court pointed out that since there is provision of regular bail under section 439 CrPC, then why should the high court consider the bail plea at this time.

The bench said that pendency of the matter before it does not preclude the petitioners from seeking regular bail from the sessions court concerned, if such bail pleas are filed, then the sessions court shall hear and decide the same in four days from filing of the plea.

Goswami and the two others were arrested by Alibaug Police in Maharashtra’s Raigad District on November 4, in connection with the suicide of architect-interior designer Naik and his mother in 2018 over alleged non-payment of dues by companies of the accused.
