The verdict has been criticised as an attack on the freedom of press
A court in the Indian capital Delhi has sentenced four journalists to four months in prison after they accused a former chief justice of corruption.
The court ruled that the allegations, which appeared in an India tabloid newspaper, Mid Day, constituted a contempt of court.
The journalists have stood by their story and say they will appeal against their sentences.
