The Chief Judicial Magistrate, Alibaug granted permission to the local CID Unit, Raigad Police to interrogate Republic TV Editor, Arnab Goswami for 3 hours every day. The police had sought permission from the magistrate to interrogate Goswami in Taloja jail. "Since the Magistrate remanded Goswami to judicial custody after arrest, the investigation pertaining to the offences and alleged against him, and the collection of evidence thereof, could not be carried out in depth" the police reasoned while seeking the permission.
Arnab Goswami was moved to the Taloja jail after allegedly being found using a mobile phone while in judicial custody at a school designated as Covid-19 centre for Alibaug prison. Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court on Monday refused to grant interim bail to the news anchor in the abetment of suicide case.
