The Bombay HC refused to grant relief to Republic TV Editor-In-Chief Arnab Goswami while hearing a petition filed by him seeking quashing of two FIRs filed in Nagpur and Mumbai against him and the channel.

Arnab sought exemption from appearing before the police for interrogation which was denied; but the Court has granted Goswami protection from arrest.

Arnab Goswami was booked under Sections 153, 153 A, 153 B, 295 A, 298, 500, 504, 505(2), 506, 120 B and 117 of IPC.
Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal appeared for the State of Maharashtra. He insisted on Arnab appearing before the police. But Salve stated that his client should be exempted from appearing before Pydhonie police station with regard to the second FIR as the said police station lies in a containment zone.

The Court directed Arnab to appear before NM Joshi police station tomorrow and granted him interim protection from arrest. The next date of hearing in the matter is June 12.
