I&B Ministry directs NDTV to shut down for a day

Union Ministry of Information & Broadcasting has reportedly penalised NDTV for its coverage of the Pathankot terror attacks. Sources at NDTV confirmed to exchange4media that the government has indeed ordered the broadcaster to shut NDTV India for a day on November 9.

The government apparently felt that NDTV compromised national security and risked the country’s strategic assets by airing the counter-terror operations undertaken by the security forces. There is speculation as to why NDTV is being singled out when several networks aired the operation on their respective channels.

Some at NDTV believe that their coverage was among the most balanced. The order is being viewed as “absurd” and “crazy”, insiders say.  NDTV is expected to challenge the order.
