The judges issued notice to the government. The Quint journalist  was charged with spying under the OSA and abetment to suicide under the IPC.

Nor can they retweet their own stories unless the official Twitter handle has done so. Nor can they use their own Twitter handles to repost invective or opinions which may be against the laws of the land. Why? Because the personal opinions expressed are apparently hurting the "integrity and credibility" of the Times Network platforms.
