3 foreign news agencies may now cover trial

The Delhi high court on Thursday gave permission to three international news agencies — Reuters, Associated Press (AP) and Agence France-Presse (AFP) — to cover the trial of the 16 December gang rape case. The court, however, did not allow independent foreign journalists to cover the court proceedings in the matter.

Justice Rajiv Shakdher gave the decision on a plea seeking permission for reporting the matter filed by the members of the Foreign Correspondents' Club through counsel Meenakshi Lekhi. The foreign journalists had taken the plea they should be permitted to report about the trial in the gang rape case.
