Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Wednesday Mar 2, 2022

Kochi :The High Court upheld Centre’s broadcast ban on Media One channel.  The ruling, delivered by Division Bench, observed there was no need to intervene with the Single Bench verdict.

In the appeal hearing, the Central government submitted to the court more evidences in a sealed cover corroborating with its claim.

The Centre asserts it has full rights to repeal channel license as per section 9(2) while Media One argued the step was in  infringement  of fundamental right and freedom of expression, thereby amounted to  constitutional violation.
