Court issues order to private channel to apologize to actress Ranjitha

Court has issued order to private television channel to apologize to actress Ranjitha with regard to video clippings telecast in the channel showing her in compromising position with Nithyananda. 

A private television channel telecast program ‘Nadanthathu Enna Kuttramum Pinnaniyum’ linking controversial godman Nithyananda and Ranjitha.  


The program showed both Ranjitha and Nithyananda in a compromising position.  Actress Ranjitha filed a case protesting against the program telecast in private television channel. 

In her accusation, Ranjitha said that video clippings of her with Nithyananda were manipulated.  Actress Ranjitha added in her accusation that it would individually cause tarnish to her name and fame. 

Since the television channel is not a news channel, but an entertainment channel, Karnataka High Court issued order to Broadcast Content Complaints Council (BCCC) for investigation into complaint by Ranjitha. 

The council headed by retired magistrate AB Shah conducted investigation.  Day before yesterday, magistrate issued an order. 
‘The video clippings in the program in question tarnish the complainant’s reputation.  The video was telecast without asking for opinion from concerned people.  This violates rights of telecast. 


It is a blatant violation of individual’s rights.  So the concerned private television channel should apologize to Ranjitha in form of a scroll every 2 hours, and the apology should be telecast till coming September 9th.  Continuously, for about 7 days, they should telecast their regrets with regard to the issue’, said the order.
