Assam’s DY 365 and Gujarat’s VTV off air after violation

Guwahati, December 15: Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has ordered Assamese news channel DY 365 to go off the air for three days and Gujarati channel VTV for a day for broadcasting content that violates the cable television network rules.

DY 365’s present frame

It must be noted that DY 365 had aired a programme in 2016, showing newborn babies being tossed in the air following a ritual and VTV had broadcast a programme showing children being beaten in an orphanage in Egypt but presented it as an incident that occurred in Gujarat after which the decision came of taking the channels off air for three days (DY 365) and one day (VTV).
