Whereas the said order has been challenged by the Raigad police before a Sessions Court, Goswami had moved a plea for habeas corpus, alleging that his arrest was illegal. The habeas corpus plea was first heard by the High Court yesterday. However, the High Court had denied interim relief stating that it would pass orders after hearing the State and the complainant Adnya Naik.
