In its notice, the PEMRA directed Channel 24 to issue an apology over fake news based on propaganda against the Prime Minister.
It further said that channel and its host must telecast their apology within seven days in the same programme 'Najam Sethi Kay Sath' in which unfounded allegations were made, along with screen tickers.
