New Delhi (ILNS): A Sessions Court has rejected Mumbai Police’s plea to have Arnab Goswami in its custody, instead of judicial custody. The CJM’s court had earlier, too, rejected a similar plea by the Alibaug police in Raigad district, following which the police had filed a revision application.

This is related to the arrest of the Republic TV editor and two others in the abetment to suicide case.

The matter will now be heard tomorrow.

Arnab Goswami the other two accused – Feroze Shaikh and Nitesh Sarda – had been remanded to judicial custody for 14 days, after the remand application of the Raigad Police was rejected by the CJM, Alibaug on Wednesday.

In a late-night order, the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Sunaina Pingale had remanded Goswami and the two other accused in judicial custody till November 18 in an abetment to suicide case.

On Wednesday the CJM had noted that the prosecution has failed to prima facie establish a link between the deceased and the accused persons.

The police, in its application, argued that the CJM court had erred in not considering the submissions and grounds submitted by the prosecution while seeking custody of Goswami and two other arrested accused Feroze Shaikh and Nitesh Sarda.

The police had even asked the Sessions court to quash the CJM order and grant them custody of the trio. The CJM in its order stated: “Taking into consideration the reasons behind the arrest of the accused persons and the arguments put forth by the accused persons, the arrest appears to be prima facie illegal.”

  1. Mr. V.k. Agarwal.. my sympathies and support with you.. I’ve had a short stint of stay in Maharashtra and left it for ever, simply because of the same reason of the biased & prejudiced attitude towards non-Maharashtrians, esp that of Shiv Sena… They are just the opposite of the great Shiva Ji Maharaj who was a saviuor, a protecter of all Hindus of Bharat. Shivaji the Great sacrificed his life for the protection & welfare of our Bharat… But this political party in particular, in the name of Shivaji the Great, is unleashing a tirade like that of a dictator.. Now they have started lodging FIRs and arresting innocent law abiding much so targetting people trying to raise their voice against the vicious actions of the ruling govt… the beating and manhandiling of a retired naval officer recently…. Such misdeads of political ruling parties ultimately will not last long..
    Keep up your spirits..

  2. Vindicitiveness is nothing new for the Government of Maharashtra. It is its innate culture. It is in its DNA.

    In my case, despite two favourable Judgments of the Hon’ble Supreme Court dated 30.8.1988 and 29.1.2014, I am being harassed and victimised by the Government of Maharashtra for the last about 36 years.

    A cycle of litigation started by GOM alleging that I am suffering from “inferiority complex”.

    The Hon’ble SC said in 1988 that what is harmful for public is superiority complex and not inferiority complex. SC allowed my civil Appeal No. 3464 of 1988 with costs and consequential benefits. (Please see AIR 1988 SC 2060, Vijay Kumar v State of Maharashtra and others)

    GOM made it a false prestige issue.

    During the pendency of the said litigation, I was suspended and chargesheeted.

    The chargesheet was ultimately terminated by Delhi High court on 28.3.2012. GOM went to SC. SC dismissed GOM’s Civil Appeal on 29.1.2014. Review Petition of GOM was dismissed on 18.8.2015.

    Despite all these favourable orders, sealed covers dated 1.7.1991 and 1.7.1995 have not been opened by GOM and I have been illegally deprived of my promotions by GOM.

    Also, false, misleading, deceptive, dishonest and fraudulent reply-affidavit dated 18.7.2019 has been filed in DHC.

    No response to my legal notices to GOM and its scoundrel-grade officers.

    In short, it is a government of the scoundrels, by the scoundrels and for the scoundrels.
