An Australian citizen of Indian origin, Mr Sunil Pahuja, has been awarded $300,000 in damages after the Supreme Court of New South Wales decided in favour of Mr Pahuja in a defamation case against TCN Channel Nine Pty Ltd.
Sunil Pahuja arrived in Australia in 2009 as a student and became an Australian citizen in 2014.
In April 2015, A Current Affair, Channel Nine’s flagship program aired an episode which filmed Mr Pahuja on a hidden camera.
The program included “hidden camera” footage of two separate meetings.
