ISLAMABAD: Filing an intra-court appeal (ICA) that is likely to be taken up by a division bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday (today), a media group has challenged the IHC’s recent verdict regarding enforcement of certain guidelines on all TV channels.

The IHC single-judge bench, headed by Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, on May 9 ordered all TV channels to stop programnes like ‘Neelam Ghar’ which, according to the court, suggest lottery or gambling even for distributing Haj/Umrah tickets as well as programmes which appear like ‘circus shows’.
