Today, there was a power packed argument in Supreme Court,

Between senior advocate Harish Salve (who represented Arnab Goswami) & Kapil Sibal (who represented Antonia Maino's Congress)

At the end, Kapil was clean bowled! (1/10)
Congress said Arnab was spreading communal hatred

But Mr Salve played out excerpts from Arnab's debate & proved that Arnab never tried to create communal disharmony!

Funny thing was that Sibal was clearly pushed on backfoot & he couldn't justify Congress party's lie (2/10)
Kapil Sibal acted as if he had consumed fevicol when Supreme Court asked

"Why all FIRs look like duplicate of each other"!

Forget defending Congress, Sibal went on to say that if FIRs are 'word to word' same, then they must be quashed!🤣

Kapil Sibal tried to play a stray audio clip of Tabhlighi Jamaatis

But Mr Salve was ready with another clip where Arnab was saying not to Communalize the Tabhlighi issue!

With this, Sibal was getting ripped apart again & again in court!

Sibal was still angry that Arnab called Sonia Gandhi as Antonia Maino!

So Sibal started saying, "Look at what this man says"

Immediately, Mr Salve said "I'm shivering"🤣

And slammed Sibal's obsession with Sonia Gandhi!

What was more embarrassing for the Congress & Sibal was that

SG Tushar Mehta criticized the Mumbai Police under the Maharashtra govt & said

“My take on this matter, this is a case where the way in which state police has acted is undesirable"

Mr Salve also revealed to the Court that one of the two officers who were interrogating Arnab has tested positive of Covid-19

He also spoke about police personnel's involvement in Palghar lynching!

Mr Salve pointed out that the whole purpose of filing case against Arnab is to teach journalists who question Congress party!

Mr Salve also expressed the malafide intention of Congress in this case!

This revelation by Mr Salve was shocking:

The police were asking Arnab questions like what's the editorial procedure, who owns the company etc!

Mr Salve asked why CFO of Republic TV was grilled for 6 hours!

Mr Salve explained why the case needs to be urgently transferred to CBI & said this is an attack on 'Freedom of Press'!

The judgement is likely to be delivered in the next few days!

Satyameva Jayate!
