New Delhi:

The Information and Broadcasting ministry has issued warning to three different television channels over content which an Inter-Ministerial Committee appointed by it felt was not as per broadcasting norms.

In the first case, a television channel was issued a warning in an order dated November 29, after it showed disturbing visuals of incidents of suicide in Kerala without adequately morphing them, as recorded in the ministry order.

In another instance, a warning was issued in an order dated November 29, to another channel which too allegedly did not adequately blur the visuals of a murder victim lying in a pool of blood.

Another channel was also issued a warning by the ministry, over revealing the identity of a victim of sexual abuse and other content which did not confirm to the norms.
