A legal notice has been served on the Editor-in-Chief of the India News Channel on November 4, 2019, for spreading false news pertaining to the incident took place in the Tis Hazari Court.

Advocate Deepak Choudhary served the legal notice accusing the news channel of publishing frivolous statement against the innocent advocates by publishing an irresponsible and inauthentic piece on their news platform. 

As per the legal notice, the news channel on November 2, 2019, the day when the brutal attack took place in the Tis Hazari Court, had allegedly published the news about the incident under the statement: “Kale coat ke gurur mein gundagardi.”

Alleging that the news channel has published the news without knowing the facts of the incident, advocate Choudhary stated that “Your news channel has published such a derogatory statement for the advocates who have been engaged in providing their selfless services to every segments of the society. Being a fourth pillar of the democracy, a news channel is expected to discharge it’s duties in a responsible manner. Your news channel has published such news without knowing the facts of the incidence and in the absence of any official press release from Delhi Bar Association.”

Thus blaming the news channel for tarnishing the image of innocent advocates in the society and also denting the reputation of this noble profession amongst the general public, advocate Choudhary has demanded immediate corrigendum/ written apology from the news channel. 

He also demanded a clarification of the same over the news channel and said that in case of failure the news channel shall be liable to face stringent legal action. 

On November 2, 2019, a massive clash broke out between the Delhi police and lawyers in the Tis Hazari Court over a meagre issue of car parking. Around 2000 policemen attached on advocates including female advocates and vandalised the lawyers’ chambers.
