    The complaint was filed by A Singh and his partner Pratishtha Singh after the channel ran a video alleging that the complainant was one of the people who harassed their reporter, Shivani Gupta, while reporting at Vadgam MLA Jignesh Mevani's 'flop show' rally.

    The authority asked the channel to run the apology before Goswami's 9 pm flagship show on September 7.
