Sun TV Shares Fall On Govt Decision to Challenge On FM Radio Auction
According to a PTI report quoting Government sources instructions have been given for filing an Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court for challenging the July 26 order of the Delhi High Court allowing Sun Network's Red FM to participate in phase-III of FM auction on July 27.

Shares in SUN TV which were trading lower by 3 per cent recovered somewhat and were last trading lower by 1 per cent at Rs 358.

Sources said one of the key grounds for challenging the two orders would be that the two high courts had not questioned the pendency of criminal charges against Sun group promoters and their implications on national security and economic security as a ground for denying security clearance.
