Legal Notice served to BBC for airing Nirbhaya Documentary

News

New Delhi, March 06: Taking an action against the BBC for airing the controversial documentary on the sensational Delhi gangrape, the Indian government has served a legal notice to the British broadcaster.

The government has ordered to remove the documentary from YouTube and all the social media sites.

In the notice, the government mentioned that the BBC has violated the rules using the documentary for commercial purpose. Further course of action will be taken after getting response from the British media giant on this issue.

The notice was sent by the Director General of Tihar Jail on Thursday evening after the BBC aired the documentary Storyville-India's Daughter on March 4 in the UK snubbing the Indian government order.

The documentary produced by the BBC and filmmaker Leslee Udwin in cooperation with the victim's parents reveals the insight into the brutal crime that took place on the night of Dec 16, 2012 when the 22-year-old paramedical girl was gangraped by six people in a moving bus. The horrific crime tore the soul of each daughter in India.

The filmmaker received flak for taking interview of Mukesh Singh, the bus driver, one of the convicts, who made derogatory remarks against women.
