Amaravati, Sep 17 (TIWN) The Andhra Pradesh government plans to challenge a state High Court gag order in the Supreme Court, which has restrained the media from reporting an Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) case, booking the former advocate general, his relatives and others for insider trading.

Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, public affairs advisor to Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, Wednesday said the state government will approach the apex court.  Late on Tuesday, Andhra Pradesh Director General of Police (DGP), Gautam Sawang, had written to the Information and Public Relations Commissioner, asking him to restrain the print, electronic and social media from publishing about an FIR which emanated from ACB’s Guntur office.  “It is informed that the High Court of AP has issued orders — that no electronic or print news item be published with respect to the FIR — of ACB Guntur dated September 15 and connected events until further orders,” said Sawang.  Sawang also separately wrote to all the local editors and managing directors of print, electronic and social media not to publish news articles on the ACB case.
