Bombay HC suspends both FIRs against Arnab Goswami

Jun 30, 2020 21:24 IST

The Bombay high court has suspended the two FIRs filed against Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami while holding prima facie that there is no case and offences against the prime-time anchor that needed coercive action. While arguing for Goswami, senior counsel Harish Salve and Milind Sathe had submitted that the journalist had a right to report on communal incidents and Goswami had done that in both the cases he was accused of. FIRs were filed against Arnab for allegedly giving a communal spin to the Palghar lynching case in April 16 and the gathering of protesting migrants outside the Bandra railway station in mid-April amid the nationwide lockdown, on his prime-time shows.
