New Delhi: On Tuesday, the Delhi High Court dismissed a plea seeking directions to the media to use the words martyr or 'shaheed' instead of 'killed' when reporting deaths of security personnel in terror or other attacks.

Referring to the February 14 terror attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir, Chaudhary said that the deaths should have been described by the media using "respectful words" like martyred or 'shaheed' and not killed or died.
