New Delhi (ILNS): A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking directions to Arnab Goswami and Republic TV to refrain from broadcasting and publishing information in the name of investigative journalism with regards to any criminal case, alleging that in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput they were reporting distorted and misleading facts.

A divisional bench comprising the Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan, while hearing the plea through physical hearing, has listed the matter for hearing through video conferencing on November 27.

The petition has been filed by Mohd Khalil, further seeking direction for the central government to frame guidelines or regulations to keep an eye on and regulating information being broadcasted related to any criminal investigation case.

The petitioner stated: “The entire charade is nothing but an exercise to increase the TRPs and viewership at the cost of an accused’s right to a fair trial.”

The plea has further sought direction for the initiation of contempt of court proceedings against Arnab Goswami and his media house company.
