NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s home minister says the government will act against the British Broadcasting Corporation for ignoring a court order and airing a documentary about a fatal New Delhi gang rape in which one of the attackers blames the victim.
“India’s Daughter” was to have been shown on Sunday, International Women’s Day, in India and several other countries. Police and the government got a court order that halted the screening, but the BBC aired the documentary in the United Kingdom late Wednesday.
Indian viewers cannot see it on the BBC’s website, but it could be seen on YouTube.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh did not specify what steps the Indian government would take, telling reporters only that “all options are open.”
