    In Fatima Nafees versus TOI and others, the Delhi High Court has directed all the Defendants to retract all the articles and video clips from their websites and also remove YouTube links.

    Observing that it is a “sensitive matter”, Justice JR Midha warned the media houses to behave as a “responsible platform”. In her defamation suit, Fatima Nafees had accused the Times Group and India Today group for spreading false, baseless and inflammatory news against Najeeb.

    Fatima Nafees has also asked that these media houses issue a public apology. This plea will be taken up in the next date of hearing which is 29.10.2018
