This would help media immensely to clarify the doubts and enable them to do accurate reporting, it said.

A statement sent out by Rajat Sharma, President, NBA said: “NBA appreciates that the Supreme Court has acknowledged the freedom of the press and has stated that it does not intent to interfere with the free discussion, debate and coverage about the pandemic.”
