In the BMW hit-and-run case that killed two youths in Ahmedabad, the accused has moved a petition on Saturday, requesting the court to restrain the media, both print and electronic, from publishing anything that “interferes with the course of justice”.

The application, moved through Shah’s lawyer H M Dhruv, has also sought action against the media groups for contempt of court.

“We were compelled to move this application due to several cases of misreporting. We don’t have problems with the media reporting day-to-day proceedings of the case but there should be some limit. Certain reports published recently were nothing but interference with justice,” said Dhruv, who represents accused Vismay Shah in the case.

He said his client has no objection but he and his family members were compelled to move the application following a report in a local daily recently that had a headline suggesting that “justice will be delivered only if Shah gets convicted”.
