Police obtains restraint orders barring media from publishing BBC documentary

Delhi Police today obtained restraint orders barring media from broadcasting and publishing the interview of December 16 gang-rape convict.

"We are going to move the court against the broadcast of such inputs," Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi told reporters here.

"This was a ghastly crime and the law has been broken, we will investigate the case," Bassi said.

He said they were filing a first information report (FIR) on the basis of media reports over the documentary.

The documentary by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin has kicked up a storm for interviewing Mukesh Sharma, who is among the six men who raped the Dec 16, 2012 victim on board a moving bus.The convict said the girl should not have "resisted" while being raped.
