Sudarshan TV case: SC defers hearing by 2 weeks

Nov 19, 2020 17:14 IST

The Supreme Court on Thursday took note of Centre’s affidavit which found that Sudarshan TV, has breached the programme code, through four episodes of its 'Bindas Bol' programme on alleged infiltration of Muslims in the bureaucracy. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, in its affidavit, annexed its November 4 order in which it warned the channel of 'stricter penal action' in case of future violations. The top court has deferred the hearing by two weeks while asking the contesting parties to go through the Centre’s reply for filing the rejoinder. The apex court had earlier imposed a pre-telecast ban on the remaining episodes of the programme.
