Local TV channel fined for ‘misleading’ broadcasts of Nalsar girls

Nalsar Hyderabad girl students stand vindicated after the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) fined Sakshi TV Rs 1 lakh for broadcasting a “flawed, one-sided and misleading story” on them when they filmed them outside a local pub in April, reported Gulte.

The students had slammed it as voyeuristic reporting after they were filmed without their consent by the news channel, owned by Congress politician YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, and the footage was edited into allegedly defamatory broadcasts.

The channel had aired the broadcasts with comment on the girls’ attire and alleged inebriation, saying it was culturally demeaning.

The decision was one of several decisions by the NBSA against TV channels, according to MediaMughals.
