Kathmandu, Nov 30 - The Supreme Court today issued an order to the government not to ban any FM radio station from broadcasting news. The order has now paved the way for the FM stations to broadcast news which was disrupted following the government raid on Kantipur FM.
The Supreme Court issued the order that allows all FM stations to broadcast news as a “matter of duty.”
The court issued the order following a hearing on a writ petition filed in the court by advocate Tulsi Ram Niroula on October 28 challenging the government ban on FM radio stations from broadcasting news.
A division bench of justices Anup Raj Sharma and Min Bahadur Rayamajhi issued the order.
