No blanket ban on reporting of Muzaffarpur shelter home case: SC

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has observed that there cannot be a blanket ban on media reporting in the Muzaffarpur shelter home sexual abuse case, in which several women inmates were allegedly raped.

A bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta vacated the August 23 order of the Patna High Court which had imposed a ban on media reporting about the investigations in the case. 

The apex court, however, asked both the print and the electronic media not to sensationalize the incidents of sexual abuse and sexual violence.

The High Court had expressed displeasure over the leak of the investigation details and asked media to refrain from publishing the investigation details as that could be detrimental to the ongoing probe into incidence. 

Challenging the Patna High Court order restraining the media from reporting about the probe into the case, a Patna-based journalist had filed the petition in the Supreme Court.
