The Editor-in-chief and Managing Director of Republic TV, Arnab Goswami along with two of the co-accused in the case of abetment to suicide, has been shifted to Taloja Central Jail in Navi Mumbai by jail officials citing security reasons.
Mr. Goswami has been in judicial custody since November 4 and was lodged in the Alibag jail-quarantine centre which is a school run by the Alibag Municipal Council.
“The shifting decision was by jail authorities. On Monday, we have a hearing on our revision petition before Alibag sessions court and if we are granted police custody, he will have to be brought back,” Raigad Superintendent of Police Ashok Dudhe said.
Notably Taloja Jail is the same prison where Kasab’s inmates were shifted in view of increasing threat to their security.
