The Bombay High Court Friday exempted Republic TV editor-in-chief from appearing before the magistrate in an abetment to suicide case registered against him in May 2018 and extended the interim protection. 

Arnab Goswami and two others, Feroze Shaikh and Nitish Sarda, were arrested on 4 November after the police reopened a case involving the death of interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik at their home in Alibag in May 2018, reported Indian Express

The magistrate had earlier exempted Goswami from his personal appearance on two occasions, however, he was asked to appear on 10 March. The Court granted them relief after their counsel assured that the applicants were willing to cooperate with the probe, but due to the Covid-19 situation in Maharashtra, it would not be possible for Goswami to attend court at Alibaug in person. 

Justice Shinde said that the Court has granted interim protection from appearance as prayed by Goswami’s lawyers and would hear the pleas next month.
