Allahabad High Court: Recently, the High Court issued gag order in Yogi Adityanath’s hate speech case of 2008 stating clearly that no one shall publish or cause to be published any proceedings of this case till the delivery of the judgment.
Additional Advocate General Shri Manish Goel brought to the notice of the Court that wrong reporting of the day-to-day proceedings of this case was being made by the media causing lot of embarrassment as the Court’s observations are often being misquoted. The Court noted that this fact was brought to its notice earlier also to which it had issued oral directions not to publish any misleading reports. So, this time, it ordered a written order gagging media to report any thing on the specified case. [Parvez Parwaz v. State of U.P., 2017 SCC OnLine All 2509, decided on 7.11.2017]
