[SSR case] What happens to arrest hashtags when report comes that it's suicide, not homicide? Chinoy argues against Media Trial in Bombay HC

The Bombay High Court on Thursday was urged to issue guidelines for the media to follow while reporting on criminal investigations and sub-judice matters so that they do not end up 'pre-judging' under the pretext of reporting.

Arguments to this effect were made by Senior Advocate Aspi Chinoy, appearing for Mahesh Narayan Singh and others, some of the PIL petitioners who have moved the High Court against the media trial of the Sushant Singh Rajput case.

The Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni took up the matter this evening.
