The Bangalore city police commissioner has requested the vernacular news channels to refrain from telecasting “provocative and insensitive” reports on the murder of RSS worker Rudresh and the Tipu Jayanti, reports DHNS from Bangalore. In an advisory, Police Commissioner N S Megharikh said it had been brought to his notice that a few local news channels were airing programmes which would create disharmony in society. He asked the channels to confirm the facts before telecasting the reports. The advisory also says that channels should refrain from airing news reports and programmes which would provoke people. Violators would be prosecuted under the provisions of the Cable Televisions Network Regulations Act, 1995, it said.
