Delhi HC seeks Arnab, Republic reply on Tharoor defamation plea

AMN

The Delhi High Court Monday  sought the response of the Arnab Goswami and his newly-launched news channel Republic TV on Congress MP Shashi Tharoor’s defamation plea against them.

In his plea, Tharoor has claimed damages and compensation of Rs 2 crore from the journalist and his channel for allegedly making defamatory remarks against him while airing news relating to the death of his wife Sunanda Pushkar.

Justice Manmohan said while issuing notice to bring down the rhetoric. You can put out your story, you can put out the facts. You cannot call him names. That is uncalled for. The High Court sought their replies by 16th August the next date of hearing.

Senior advocate Salman Khurshid, appearing for Tharoor, said he should be protected and the channel and the journalist directed to justify the statements made against him.

Senior advocate Sandeep Sethi, appearing for Goswami and the channel, said they would justify each and every statement made by them and therefore, there was no need for any interim order injuncting them.
