"Justice prevails": Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma celebrates Arnab Goswami's release on bail


MUMBAI: Assam Cabinet Minister and BJP's point man in the North East Himanta Biswa Sarma today celebrated Republic TV Head Arnab Goswami getting interim bail from the Supreme Court. Taking to Twitter earlier today, Sarma said that "justice is served."

"I am extremely pleased that Hon #SupremeCourt has granted an interim bail to #ArnabGoswami. With this, I sincerely hope the wicked witch hunt against Republic TV Editor in Chief, and the channel, comes to an end. Justice prevails!"

After Goswami's arrest in an abetment of suicide case, BJP leaders from across India, including Sarma had spoken out in his support. Subsequently, protests were staged across India demanding his immediate release.

According to reports, the Supreme court said that the High Court was incorrect in not granting bail.

The court further added that Arnab Goswami and two other accused, should be released on interim bail on a bond of Rs 50,000.

A bench of Justices Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee made the observations while hearing Goswami’s plea challenging the Bombay HC order.

Supreme Court stateed that his arrest was "illegal, mala-fide and politically motivated as evident from the multifarious proceedings initiated against him

Goswami on Tuesday moved to the Supreme Court to seek interim bail in the 2018 abetment of suicide case of an interior designer, Anvay Naik.
The Bombay HC on Monday refused to grant bail to Goswami and asked him to move to the local court for interim relief.

The appeal against the high court order has been filed in the top court through lawyer Nirnimesh Dubey.

The state government, through advocate Sachin Patil, has also filed a caveat in the top court to ensure that no order is passed on Goswami’s plea without it being heard in the case.
