NDTV has informed the Supreme Court that it will not apologise for its coverage of the Pathankot coverage of a terrorist attack in January 2016.
Harish Salve, Senior Advocate told the court bench that no apology will be tendered. In response to this, the government’s law officer solicitor general Ranjit Kumar said that the case will be heard on merits with a decision made by court.
NDTV India may face a one-day blackout, as the initial hearing ordered the channel to apologise for it to avoid any action taken against the channel. NDTV India was expected to be shutdown for one day on 9th November but the matter was pushed to the court by the broadcaster.
The case will continue later this month.
