The National Broadcasting and Digital Standards Authority asked news channel Times Now to take down a debate show that called activist Teesta Setalvad 'Modi baiter'. The show used her speech at the Shaheen Bagh protest against the CAA and portrayed a 'particular narrative'. The news regulator noted that Teesta did not make any statements against PM Modi. The show aired in February 2020 but is still available on Times Now's website and social media handles. The order said that the show lacks neutrality and accuracy.
