An error was inadvertently committed in the report by our Special Correspondent published in the front page of The Hindu under the headline “Two editors of TV 5 arrested in Hyderabad.” The report wrongly stated that TV9 was among the three channels booked by the Crime Investigation Department (CID) in connection with the telecast of a report that led to attacks on Reliance groups' outlets in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday.

TV9 was not among the channels booked or involved in any way in the criminal cases registered.

We retract the wrong statement published in our newspaper, deeply regret the error, and apologise to TV9 for including its name in the report.

Editor-in-Chief, The Hindu
