The news group NDTV has criticized the ban imposed by its founders Radhika and Prannoy Roy on traveling outside the country as 'violation of basic rights'. In a statement, it has been described as a 'warning to the media'.
In a statement released on its website, NDTV claimed that Radhika and Prannoy Roy were stopped 'on the basis of a fake and baseless case of corruption'.
It has also been told that this case was registered by the CBI two years ago and the matter has been challenged by the Roy couple's company in the Delhi High Court, where it has been pending for two years.
Two years ago, the CBI had also conducted raids against NDTV founder Prannoy Roy in Delhi and Dehradun.
It was then told that this action has been taken in the matter of allegedly harming a private bank.

In a statement issued in this case, NDTV said that the officials did not inform the court and any of the Roy couple about the action.
NDTV has said, "These actions are a warning to the media to follow them or suffer the consequences."
According to the news group, Radhika and Prannoy Roy were going out of the country for a week. He was to return on August 15. NDTV has claimed that both of them have been coming out of the country before.
"In such a situation, it is ridiculous to indicate that their exit may be dangerous."
There has been no statement from the government or officials about this, but this matter is trending on Twitter. The #SupportNDTV hashtag remains in the top trend on Twitter.
Supreme Court lawyer Karuna Nandi wrote on Twitter, "One of the few left-leaning media and they are doing everything to break them. If you are still free and you still want to know what happens in our country #SupportNDTV "
Amiya Patra wrote, "My full support to NDTV. In today's India it raises the voice of the voiceless."
Pradeep Chaudhary wrote, "Support NDTV for Ravish Kumar, who won the Ramon Magsaysay Award."
On the other hand, some people are also tweeting against NDTV and are also questioning the journalism of the channel.
An account named Rishabh Saroj Sharma reads, "Give me a reason why I support NDTV. A lot of black money has come in the name of journalism. Your anti-India propaganda has come to the fore. I do not support you."
