Meanwhile Senior Advocate Harish Salve made strong arguments representing Arnab Goswami once again, as the Bombay High Court on Saturday reserved its order in Republic Media Network's Editor-in-Chief's plea against his arrest. The two-judge bench comprising of Justices S S Shinde and M S Karnik ordered that bail can be sought by Arnab under Section 439 from the sessions court. The court also ordered that the sessions court must decide within four days if approached for bail. The Bombay High Court would pronounce its order as soon as possible, Justice Shinde stated.

Bombay High Court reserves its order
Previously, on Friday, arguing for Arnab's release, senior advocate Harish Salve had stated that no permission had been taken by the police for reopening the 2018 Anvay Naik abetment of suicide case in which Arnab has been arrested, as per the order of the Chief Judicial Magistrate, adding 'the arrest is illegal'. Critically, while pronouncing her order in the remand hearing, the CJM too observed that there is no chain showing nexus between the suicide and the role of the accused i.e. Arnab. 

During the day's proceedings on Saturday, the Maharashtra government defended Arnab's arrest, stating that if 'illegal arrest has resulted in judicial remand', questioning of arrest is 'not relevant'. It also maintained that the state govt has the power to direct investigation.

After the court heard all parties, including two other co-accused who have also been arrested as well as the informant's (Naik family's) lawyer, Harish Salve offered his contentions, arguing that the High Court was a correct forum to seek bail.
