The incident where a newspaper publication tweeted that the CBI court had dismissed the bail revocation petition filed against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and that a clean chit has been given to him. The fact is that a judgement hasn’t been given on this issue so far, which has caused the newspaper a lot of trouble.
While the tweet was shortlived on Twitter, as it was deleted shortly, due to the immense criticism it attracted, screenshots of the tweet had been taken and became viral on social media. Then, a case was filed against the newspaper in the court, providing the screenshot as evidence of the newspaper spreading wrong information to the public, and questioning how the newspaper got to know the judgement before it was announced. Given that Jagan recently met with Kishan Reddy, questions of whether Kishan Reddy is involved in the matter are also coming up.
The bail revocation petition filed on Jagan became a hot topic in AP as soon as it was filed and continues to be so, with everyone looking forward to the final judgement. Various newspaper publications are awaiting the release of the judgement, and templates are already said to have been made ready accordingly. However, looks like this newspaper publication in question seems to have prepared just one template, over a misinformed piece of information.
