The Supreme Court Monday declined to interfere with a Bombay High Court order directing Times Global Broadcasting Co. to deposit Rs.20 crore with high court registrar along with a Rs.80 crore bank guarantee in a Rs.100 crore defamation suit filed by a retired supreme court judge.
An apex court bench headed by Justice G.S. Singhvi said “we are not inclined to stay the high court order”.
Times Global Broadcasting was asked to pay damages to Justice P.B. Sawant for wrongly carrying his image on the Times Now news channel while telecasting a story on the Ghaziabad district court provident fund scam.
