New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Bombay High Court on Saturday reserved its order on the habeas corpus and bail pleas filed by Republic TV Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami in connection with a 2018 abetment to suicide case.

Goswami was arrested by the Mumbai Police last week for his alleged involvement in the abetment of suicide of architect Anvay Naik and his mother over non-payment of dues by his firm. Following this, he had moved the High Court against his "illegal arrest" and sought that the FIR against him be quashed. Goswami had alleged that he, along with his mother-in-law, father-in-law, son, and wife have been physically assaulted
The High Court had adjourned the matter yesterday and observed that it would not pass the order without hearing all parties.
"We have to hear all the parties concerned before considering the interim relief sought. We have to also hear the complainant as the family of the deceased has filed a petition here seeking transfer of the probe," the bench had said.
