Bollywood actress Rakul Preet Singh on Thursday filed a petition in the Delhi High Court to prevent the print and electronic media from using her name linking with the drug case being probed by the NCB. Justice Navin Chawla has served notices to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Prasar Bharati, National Broadcasters' Association and Press Council of India.
The High Court in its order said that concerned government departments can take legal action regarding violations considering the petitioner's petition as a complaint. Rakul’s name was widely reported in the media claiming that Rhea Chakraborty had revealed her name to the NCB.
