Police on Friday registered an FIR in connection with the screening of banned documentary, India's Daughter, in south Delhi's Sant Ravi Dass camp area.

According to police, an FIR has been registered in this regard and investigation has been launched to probe the matter.

"Nobody has been named in the FIR so far. Police have launched the investigation in connection with the screening of this documentary," Delhi police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

Independent filmmaker Ketan Dixit had allegedly held a screening of the controversial documentary in Sant Ravi Dass camp on Thursday. This is the locality where all the four accused in the December 16 bus gangrape case used to live.

The screening of 'India's Daughter' was banned in India after a public outrage.

The film that features an interview with one of the convicts – Mukesh Singh— ran into controversy, with critics saying it gave the rapist an opportunity to justify his acts and could encourage copycat crimes.

Singh and four others were convicted in September 2013 and sentenced to death, but their appeals are pending in the Supreme Court.
