New Delhi, Sep 23 (TIWN) The Centre on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court it has, prima facie, found that the Sudarshan TV programme, titled "UPSC Jehad", violated the Programme Code, and a result, a detailed show cause notice has been issued to the channel to explain why action should not be taken against it.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, told a bench headed by Justice D.Y. Chandrachud that Sudarshan TV has been asked to furnish a reply to the notice by September 28 and suggested the court adjourn the hearing in the case.  At this, the bench observed that had it not intervened on the matter and passed an injunction, then all ten episodes would have been broadcast.  “The programme would have been over now, if the court had not intervened,” said Justice Chandrachud.
