New Delhi: The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has asked Sony TV not to telecast an episode of its Crime Patrol show based on the Dec 16 Delhi gang rape, an official source said Friday.

"Sony has been conveyed informally the request not to air the episode," the official source said.
Crime Patrol episodes are based on real-life crime stories.

An official behind the show said a week ago that they planned to base the Jan 11-12 episode on the brutal gang rape and torture of a 23-year-old physiotherapist trainee in south Delhi. The young woman died in a Singapore hospital Dec 29 of her grievous injuries.

The six rapists, including a juvenile, have been arrested and charges, including of murder, have been filed against five of them.
