Nine reporters from newspapers and news channels have moved the Bombay High Court, challenging a sessions court order gagging the media from reporting the trial of retired and serving police officials accused in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case. The journalists say the case has already been extensively reported and people have a right to know what transpires in the trial. They argue the trial court order was based on a mere 'apprehension' of untoward incident. On The 9 O' Clock News, they outline their case for the freedom of the press.
