Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani of the Delhi High Court recused himself on Friday from hearing a plea against the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The plea was filed by Gujarat-based NGO—Justice On Trial—which is seeking damages from the BBC for its documentary India: The Modi Question. The NGO alleges that the documentary damages India's reputation and makes false and defamatory claims against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian judiciary.
