In the statement, India Today said, “It is unfortunate that certain sections of the media are misreporting the reasons for TV Today approaching the Bombay High Court against BARC. The petition filed challenges an order passed by the BARC disciplinary committee on the grounds that it was without an appropriate quorum and without presenting evidence, among other criteria. The court has stayed the order and directed that no coercive action be taken subject to a deposit of 5 lakh with the court-- and not with BARC-- and without prejudice to our rights.

“India Today would like to clarify that the Hansa report has nothing to do with the case filed by TV Today against BARC. Similarly, any mention of TV Today's name in the Hansa report is something we are completely unaware of. We are not privy to any such information, and neither has BARC informed us of the report.

“In fact, Hansa has filed a suit against Republic TV in which it has said that Hansa cannot ascertain the veracity of the document being shown on R TV and the broadcast of the report by R TV is unauthorised and illegal.

"To extricate themselves from the police investigation, R TV is using the document they are calling the Hansa report without the consent and permission of Hansa."
