YouTube blocks access to BBC documentary

New Delhi: YouTube today blocked access to the controversial BBC documentary on the December 16, 2012 gang rape, citing court orders.

The documentary “India’s Daughter”, by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin, carrying an interview with Mukesh Singh, one of the six men who brutally raped the young woman, has kicked up a storm in India.

A court had issued a restraining order on airing of the documentary.

As YouTube started blocking the documentary on Thursday evening citing court orders, it could, however, still be seen across many channels on the website which had uploaded the same.
