Court can’t rely on newspapers for decision-making: SC

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it would not rely on either news reports or newspapers while arriving at judicial decisions in cases connected with violent protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

A Bench, headed by Justice S.A. Bobde and comprising Justices B.R. Gavai and Surya Kant, said this when a senior counsel displayed a newspaper to cite the Jamia Millia Islamai Vice-Chancellor’s statement on the police action against students, and sought the court’s attention to the published articles.
