Govt will not allow Nirbhaya Documentary to telecast: Rajnath Singh

New Delhi, March 04: For the first time all the members in Rajya Sabha stayed united and condemned the interview of one of the convicts in sensational 2012 Nirbhaya case. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh assured the House that the documentary will not be allowed to air as the British filmmaker violated the instructions and rule by taking the interview of the culprit.

Clarifying the conditions, Singh said that the British filmmaker Leslee Udwin was given permission to shoot the interview for the social purpose, but she violated the rule. Even the Tihar jail authorities have been served a legal notice for violating the terms and conditions.

He said that the government condemned the Delhi gangrape-murder of the paramedical girl. And the government will not allow anyone to use the incident for any commercial purpose. This is the matter of women's dignity and their security.

However, Leslee Udwin said that she had taken the interview of Mukesh Singh, one of the convicts in the Delhi gangrape-murder case and lodged in Tihar jail in Delhi, following all the instructions and rules set by the jail authorities.

She claimed that she had permission from the Home Ministry and Tihar authorities. There was no breach of law or rules, she said.
