The Delhi High Court on October 15 sought a response from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on actress Rakulpreet’s plea, alleging that she had never smoked and never drank. Rakulpreet said the media was speculating on the statement and was being exploited by it.
The court wanted the report by October 15
A bench of High Court Judge Naveen Chawla has asked the ministry, the Press Council of India and the News Broadcasters Association to file a report on the matter by October 15. Advocate Aman Hingorani, appearing for Rakulpreet, said no government agency had responded. He said the court had the power to stop these publications while the case was under investigation.
Rakulpreet says that I was called as a witness in this case. But fake news is being spread about me that I take medicine and keep it. I never smoked and I never got drunk.
Rakul made an application
After revealing his name in the drug investigation of Sushant’s case, Rakulpreet filed an application in the High Court that news and articles should not be published against him. The court directed the other persons involved in the case, including the minister, to tell them about the steps taken in the case.
