The Supreme Court on Thursday sought an unconditional apology from a private TV channel and its reporter for carrying out a sting operation allegedly showing corruption in the lower judiciary.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan said it was not satisfied with the affidavit filed by them and posted the mater for further hearing after four weeks.

Zee TV had carried a sting operation "Cash for warrant scam" in 2004. It purportedly showed three advocates of Ahmedabad allegedly taking Rs 40,000 for securing bailable warrants against the then President APJ Abdul Kalam, the then Chief Justice of India V N Khare, the then apex court Judge Justice B P Singh and Senior Counsel late RK Jain.
