The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered for the immediate release of Republic TV founding editor Arnab Goswami in connection with the 2018 abetment to suicide case, saying it will walk on a path of destruction if it doesn’t interfere in this matter. A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee gave interim bail to Goswami and two other co-accused in the case, maintaining that the Bombay High Court order of denying them the relief was incorrect. The court asked the TV anchor and two others to execute a personal bond of Rs 50,000 each and asked them to cooperate with the investigators in the meantime. While the detailed order will be released by the bench on Thursday, the bench made strong remarks on why it was imperative for the Supreme Court to intervene in cases of personal liberty to protect it. The argument in the courtroom also saw some sharpened exchange between the advocates.
