Indian SC to hear cases challenging ban on BBC Series on Modi

New Delhi, January 30 (KMS): The Indian Supreme Court will next Monday hear petitions filed against the Modi government’s decision to ban a BBC documentary on Narendra Modi’s role in the 2002 Muslim-majority Gujarat violence.

A bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and justices PS Narasimha and JB Pardiwala took note of the submissions of serial litigant Advocate ML Sharma and senior advocate CU Singh, seeking urgent listing of their separate Public Interest Litigations on the issue.

In addition to Mr Sharma, another petition has been filed by veteran journalist N Ram, activist-lawyer Prashant Bhushan and Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra.
