A bench of justices DY Chandrachud and MR Shah heard his case on Friday. Arnab has requested the apex court that no coercive measures should be taken on FIRs registered against him.  FIRs are registered against him in Maharashtra, Telangana, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh and the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

In his appeal, Arnab has said the FIRs are an attempt to curb free speech and the Freedom of the Press under Article 19(1) (a) of the Constitution. The Supreme Court on Friday granted 3 weeks of interim protection to Arnab.

The apex court in its judgment said the “no coercive action against the petitioner” must be taken. He can move an anticipatory bail application in three weeks, said the court. The court quashed all but one FIR filed at Nagpur against him.
