TV channels to be prosecuted if they incite violence: CEC

Chief Election Commissioner M S Gill has warned TV channels, that if their bashing of any political party during elections, leads to a law and order problem, the offending channel could face prosecution under the Cable Television Regulation Act.

He was talking to media when he said that sections 3,5,6 and 8 of the Act held the channels responsible if they carried any programmes that incited violence or violated the law.
