The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has asked Sony TV not to telecast an episode of its Crime Patrol show based on the December 16 Delhi gang-rape, an official source said on Friday.
"Sony has been conveyed informally the request not to air the episode," the official source said. Crime Patrol episodes are based on real-life crime stories.
An official behind the show said a week ago that they planned to base the January 11-12 episode on the brutal gang-rape and torture of a 23-year-old physiotherapist trainee in south Delhi. The young woman died in a Singapore hospital December 29 of her grievous injuries.
The six rapists, including a juvenile, have been arrested and charges, including of murder, have been filed against five of them
