After his release, Goswami shouted slogans “Vande Mataram” and “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” raising his hands from a car.

Earlier on the day, the apex court granted interim bail to Goswami and two other accused in the case on a bond of Rs 50,000.

A Supreme Court bench, comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and Indira Banerjee, said Goswami, Nitish Sarda and Parveen Rajesh Singh should not tamper with evidence and cooperate in the investigation in the abetment to the suicide case.

The top court also directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure the order is followed with immediate effect.

The Supreme Court also said Republic TV editor-chief Goswami and the two others should not tamper with evidence and cooperate with the authorities in the investigation into the abetment to the suicide case.

Goswami had moved the top court after the Bombay High Court on Monday rejected his plea to grant interim bail and the two others in the case.

The Bombay High Court will hear the plea seeking to quash the FIR on December 10.

The three were arrested by Alibaug police in Raigad district of Maharashtra on November 4 in connection with the suicide of architect-interior designer Anvay Naik and his mother in 2018 over alleged non-payment of dues by companies of the accused.
