Pakistan: Bol News goes ‘off air’ for live coverage of PTI-police clashes

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 21 Mar 2023, 12:29 am

The Pakistani electronic media regulator has imposed a ban on Bol News for live coverage of clashes between law enforcement personnel and the PTI workers recently.

The two groups clashed with each other as PTI Chairman Imran Khan arrived to appear before a judge in the Toshakhana case in Islamabad last week.

As the situation intensified, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) directed all news and current affairs channels to stop live coverage from outside the Judicial Complex, the scene of unruly clashes, reports Dawn News.

Bol News continued to air the situation live prompting the regulator to direct cable operators to stop its transmission, the Pakistani newspaper reported.

Pemra reasoned that live coverage of public outrage against law enforcers created panic among police ranks.
