The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad high court has said that the country requires a statutory forum for electronic media which people may approach to ventilate their grievance. The observation came from a division bench of Justice Devi Prasad Singh and Justice Ashok Pal Singh on a petition filed by activist Nutan Thakur against alleged 'media trial'.

The bench said that for any misconduct committed by the print media statutory forum is available in the form of Press Council of India but with regard to the electronic media no such statutory forum is available which seems to be not proper in a country which is run by rule of law and governed by the democratic polity. Hence the Union needed to provide statutory forum for electronic-media, the bench added.
