The Raigad police shifted Republic TV’s promoter, MD, and chief editor, Arnab Goswami to Taloja jail in Navi Mumbai from a makeshift quarantine center-turned-jail in Alibaug on Sunday morning, a sudden move that they said were necessitated by their discovery that he was on social media from a mobile phone while in judicial custody.

Goswami is one of three accused in the case of abetment of suicide of an interior designer, Anvay Naik, and his mother, Kumud.

Goswami spent four days in quarantine before he was moved on the fifth day. A certificate saying he was negative for Covid-19 was submitted to the Taloja jail.

“On Friday, late in the evening, we learned that Goswami was active on social media, using somebody’s mobile phone,” the investigating officer, inspector Jamil Shaikh of the Raigad crime branch, said.
