ISLAMABAD: While rejecting the plea of Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) for banning ARY News program ‘Live with Dr. Shahid Masood’, the Islamabad High Court has ordered the regulatory body to let the TV show continue.

In a hearing on Wednesday, the IHC bench told the electronic media regulatory body that the ban was imposed on the anchorperson, not on the program. Hence it be allowed to go on-air.

ARY counsel in the case, Faisal Chaudhary, said the court will announce its verdict, in the light of given evidences, in the next hearing if Pemra lawyer doesn’t turn up in the case proceeding.
