Justice DY Chandrachud led bench of the #SupremeCourt to shortly hear appeal by Election Commission against Madras HC observations that @ECISVEEP is singularly responsible for the #COVID19 situation in India and that it should probably be put on "murder charges" Image
The plea is an appeal against an April 30 order of Madras High Court which had refused to entertain ECI's petition in this regard.
The ECI sought directions to be issued to media houses to confine their reports to observations recorded in orders or judgments and to refrain from reporting on oral observations made during court proceedings in a case concerning COVID protocol for vote counting in Tamil Nadu.
