Allahabad High Court order restraining media set aside

September 14th, 2012 - 3:43 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, Sep 14 (IANS) The Supreme Court Friday set aside the Allahabad High Court order restraining media from reporting on the movement of army troops. The apex court bench of Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice C.K. Prasad quashed the restraint order while observing, “How can the high court give such an ex parte order?”

The Allahabad High Court had imposed a ban on media reports on movement of army troops in the wake of a sensational report by a newspaper April this year alleging that there was a movement of troops at the height of the age controversy of the former Army chief, Gen. V.K. Singh.

The Supreme Court was moved by the Press Council of India May this year, challenging the Allahabad High Court’s restraint order on the media.
