India Today Journalist to broadcast an apology for defamatory content during a show aired in 2010

Rahul Kanwal, journalist of India Today, will broadcast an apology to Brigadier P.K. Tikoo, in response to a case of defamation filed against him by the latter. The case pertains to an episode that was aired on Headlines Today in 2010 where the journalist had conducted a panel discussion on the allegations of threats and extortion made against the Brigadier by one businessman, Vinod Gandhi. The former Deputy Director General of Military Arms had then moved the court against Kanwal and Vinod Gandhi.

The show also played an alleged telephonic conversation between them and the panel discussed the declining values in Armed Forces. Brigadier Tikoo said that he was never contacted and the veracity of the conversation wasn’t checked. He also said that this had caused great damage to his reputation and his friends, associates had started withdrawing from his company after the show was aired.

A bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Amitava Roy observed, “It is happily agreed by counsel for the parties that an unconditional apology will be broadcast on February 19 between 10 pm and 10:30 pm.” The charges against Rahul Kanwal will stand dropped if the apology is broadcast at the said time.

The case was filed by the Brigadier, presumably for the following panel discussion:
