Sony Entertainment Television Asia has been forced to pull off ‘Crime Patrol’, which featured references to the Delhi gang rape.
The show produced by Optimystix Productions was scheduled to air this weekend. It was based on the entire Delhi Gang rape incident.
Times Of India reports that this particular episode has been banned from being telecast tonight, courtesy pressure from the Top (I&B Ministry). A source says that as the case is still under surveillance, it would be unfair to show the episode without any final verdict. Hence; the tonight’s episode has been chopped.
When contacted, Neeraj Nayak, creative and the co producer of the show confirms, “Yes, the news is true. The channel has been told not to telecast crime patrol episode based on Delhi Gang Rape case.”
Times Of India also contacted, Anup Soni, the anchor of the show and he stated, “Even I have heard that the episode has been stopped from being aired tonight. But the channel would be more comfortable in commenting on the same.”
