Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said the government has taken necessary action to stop the telecast of a documentary based on the interview with a convict in the December 16 gang-rape case.
Making a statement in Rajya Sabha, the home minister said government condemns the December 16, 2012 incident and will not allow to leverage such incidents for commercial use.
The information and broadcasting ministry has already sent an advisory to all news channels telling them not to carry the story.
Portions of the interview appeared in the media and on YouTube on Monday, setting off a controversy that seems to be snowballing.
In them, death row inmate Mukesh Singh, who was driving the bus where the crime took place, blames the 23-year-old victim for the brutal assault that ultimately killed her.What's your view on the controversy? Take the poll questions and help us understand what people think.
