BBC documentary on rapist uploaded on YouTube


India's Daughter

New Delhi: A controversial BBC documentary featuring one of the December 16, 2012 gang rape convicts has been uploaded on video sharing website YouTube by an individual.  However, the BBC site says “BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in the UK only”.
The home ministry on Wednesday said orders were obtained from court to restrain the broadcast of the documentary.  The documentary “India’s daughter” by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin has kicked up a storm over the interview of one of the six men who raped the 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist on December 16, 2012 on board a moving bus in Delhi. She later died in a Singaporre hospital where she had been airlifted for specialised treatment.
