Arnab Goswami's arrest: SC vacation bench to hear plea against Bombay HC ordertext_fields
New Delhi: A vacation bench of the Supreme Court of Justices D Y Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee will consider a petition filed by Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami challenging the Bombay High Court order which denied him an interim bail in a suicide case.
The controversial journalist has been under custody since November 4 in the case.
The plea filed through advocate Nirnimesh Dube contends that High Court erred in coming to the conclusion that power under Article 226 of the constitution should not be exercised when there is an alternative efficacious remedy.
The Bombay court, while refusing to grant interim bail, had said that it could not find a reason for the exercise of extraordinary jurisdiction by the High Court under Article 226 of the constitution.
