We’re Past FIR Stage
Harish Salve argues overlay of malice and fact, abuse and conduct of state power is not something that happens on daily basis. We’re past FIR stage. FIR was lodged in May 2018 & after this matter was probed. Power to re-investigation wrongly used.
Justice Chandrachud says to senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Arnab Goswami, “Before you begin, there is one aspect we look at in these matters where there is a challenge to the FIRs. The only prayer which survives is the quashing of FIR.”
