Press Council of India chief Markandey Katju has expressed regret over his remarks against journalists that had created a storm in the media and the Indian Newspaper Society (INS) has accepted it.

The members of the Executive Committee of INS, which met to consider the regret expressed by Katju in his letter to INS president on September 21, has accepted it, the INS said in a statement on Monday.
