The Allahabad High Court, while hearing a plea to direct the state to regulate media adequately, has lamented the fake fabricated news which harms the society, in their opinion. Earlier, while hearing another petition, the Supreme Court had lamented the fabrication and communal colourisation of news as well. Now, the Allahabad HC has followed suit and has expressed their dissatisfaction in the widespread fabrication of News. However, the court, while acknowledging the menace of fake news, has however dismissed the plea stating that this comes within the ambit of State Policymaking where court cannot possibly interfere.
