New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has ordered a private channel to submit videos of two recent episodes of its reality show--emotional atyachaar-- to check the vulgarity and obscenity in the show.

The High Court will also see whether the censor board had complied with the guidelines while awarding the certificate for broadcasting the show.

A PIL seeking cancellation of the licence of the channel for showing such a reality show was filed by NGO Indraprastha and people had demanded probe into the content of the programme.

The NGO alleged that the programme is hurting the emotions of the people and is responsible for many break ups in the name of conducting a loyalty test on partners.

According to the NGO, the content is vulgar and obscene and also violates privacy of citizens.

A bench of Chief Justice Deepak Mishra and Justice Sanjiv Khanna has asked the channel to submit the video of two recent episodes by next Wednesday.

The bench has also directed the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to place guidelines. “We want to see on which ground the Censor Board gave certificate to the channel for broadcasting the programme,” the bench stated.

During the last hearing, Additional Solicitor General SS Chandihok said the I&B Ministry had issued a show-cause notice to the channel in last February and the telecast of the programme was stopped.

However, the petitioners have alleged that the programme is being broadcasted again.
