I&B ministry asks channels not to air BBC documentary

New Delhi: The information and broadcasting ministry on Tuesday asked news channels not to air the BBC documentary carrying an interview of one of those convicted in the December 16, 2012 gang rape.

The ministry has asked the channels not to air the documentary “India’s daughter” by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin, sources told IANS.
