New Delhi (ILNS): Troubles have not receded for Republic TV Editor Arnab Goswami. Mumbai Police has now issued a show-cause notice to Goswami, alleging that remarks were made during the Palghar lynching case and the Bandra migrants incident, which were communally provocative in nature.
The police have demanded that Goswami sign a bond for “Good behaviour”.
In serving the notice Sudhir Jambavdekar, assistant commissioner of police (Worli division), exercised his power as an Executive Magistrate under Section 108 of the Code of Criminal Procedure Code. Under that section the police can demand “security for good behaviour” from a person, suspected of acts like publication of materials affecting communal harmony.
Goswami has been asked to present himself before the Special Executive Magistrate and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Worli Division on today at 4 pm.
The notice was to show cause why he should not be asked to furnish the said bond to the amount of Rs 10 lakh for the duration of one year with one guarantor “who is well-known in society and who can control his behaviour”.
