The Delhi High Court issued notices to the Information & Broadcasting ministry, Prasar Bharati, News Broadcasters Association (NBA) and Press Council of India (PCI) on Thursday after actor Rakul Preet Singh moved court alleging a ‘media trial’ in a drug investigation related to Sushant Singh Rajput case.

It was earlier reported that Rakul Preet Singh was named by Rhea Chakraborty during a Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation into a drugs angle related to Sushant Singh Rajput case.

In her submission before Delhi HC, Rakul Preet also said that she learnt that she had been named in the case, only through TV channels.

The HC issued a notice in Rakul’s petition against "unsubstantiated" media reports against her in connection with the drug case.

The directions came on Thursday during a hearing of Rakul’s plea in the matter, legal websites reported.

"It is hoped that media houses and TV channels would show restraint and abide by the Program Code and other guidelines while making any report in connection with Rakul," the High Court said, adding, "Even if action is taken against one channel, it will send a message to others."
