The shares of Sun TV Network were last trading at Rs 318 on sustained buying support.  Earlier last month the Home Ministry had struck down an Information and Broadcasting Ministry's proposal for giving security clearance to 33 television channels of Kalanithi Maran-promoted Sun TV Network, a move that could lead to cancellation of their broadcasting licence.
