The Bombay High Court has restrained news channels from broadcasting defamatory news stories against Salman Khan.
According to a report in the Times Of India, Justice S J Kathawalla heard a suit filed by Khan seeking an apology from ABP News channel for an incorrect story.
Granting the interim relief of injunction, Kathawala said, “I am prima facie satisfied that the Defendants (ABP) are indulging in broadcasting defamatory allegations against the Plaintiff (Salman) which are likely to prejudice the Plaintiff in defence to the pending proceedings before the Sessions Court.”
In 2002, Khan was allegedly involved in an accident killing one and injuring four others who were sleeping on the footpath. Police said he was under the influence of alcohol. The actress was arrested and released on bail.
News broadcasters have given this story a lot of prominence in a negative light against Khan.
