Supreme Court rejects plea to gag media on Adani-Hindenburg issue

New Delhi/UNI: The Supreme Court on Friday said it won't issue any directive to stop the media from reporting on Adani-Hindenburg issue and that it will soon pass an order on the matter as it had already reserved its verdict on the constitution of a committee to look into the episode.

"We won't injunct the media. We are not going to issue any injunction against the media. We will pronounce our order soon," a bench of the Supreme Court, headed by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dr Dhananjaya Yeshwant Chadrachud said, after hearing a mentioning by one of the petitioners-cum-lawyer, in the case, Manohar Lal Sharma, who sought a gag order on media in reporting the Adani-Hindenburg case stories.

Sharma pleaded the Supreme Court to consider gagging media from carrying reports on Adani Hindenburg Report, until the Top court delivers its order on constitution of a committee to look into the episode.

Sharma pleaded to restrain the press from publishing any kind of news related to the Hindenburg report on Adani Enterprises, but the Apex Court refused to pass any order.

The Supreme Court had on February 17, in its order said that it would not accept the sealed cover names of experts suggested by Union government for including in the committee to be set up to examine Hindenburg-Adani report that led to meltdown of Adani group shares, noting that "We want to maintain full transparency" in the case.

The Supreme Court also on February 17 had reserved its order on the appointment of a committee which will look into the entire issue and investigate thoroughly.

The Supreme Court had heard a number of petitions filed by lawyer duo -- Manohar Lal Sharma and Vishal Tiwari -- and Congress leader and Member of Parliament (MP) Jaya Thakur, and others seeking a direction for investigation against Adani Group in the light of the Hindenburg report.
