Agree? Aaj Tak News Channel Deserves Punishment For Spreading Fake News About Sushant Singh Rajput's Death

Last year, there were many theories related to his death that surfaced on various news channels, and social media got influenced by the information that was running on these news features. One such news channel was Aaj Tk. The channel was running insensitive tag lines about Sushant and also for attributing fake tweets as the final words of Sushant Singh Rajput. The images of the tweets gained traction, with Aaj Tak running them as a part of its news broadcast.

However, the news portal later deleted it from its social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter. But by that time the damage was done as people started to point out it was fake because the font didn’t match the Twitter font. The Hindi news channel of the India Today group, has been asked by the NBSA (News Broadcasting Standard Authority) to air a public apology on their channel on the 23rd of April for spreading fake news about Sushant. Aaj Tak has also been asked to pay a fine of Rs 1 lac for the same for this misinformation.
