New Delhi, Oct 6: After Star TV ran into a controversy with 'Sach Ka Saamna'; NDTV's Imagine's new reality show 'Patni Patni Aur Wohi' invited the wrath of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).
However, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday, Oct 6, stayed the interim order issued by the commission to cease the telecast of the show and asked the commission to complete its investigation and prepare the final report.
This means that the channel can continue telecasting the reality show which is an adaptation of an international show called 'Baby Burrowers'.
Stating that the show was in violation of child rights, the NCPCR on Sep 30 ordered the channel to stop telecasting the show.
NDTV moved the Delhi High Court against the order claiming, "The said order has been clearly in violation of the Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005 because the act does not give any jurisdiction to the commission to pass orders against citizens.".
The channel's petition also pointed out that the parents of the children made voluntary choices, and that there was no nudity or illegal activity done on the child.
In a similar incident, the reality show 'Sach Ka Saamna' ran into trouble with the public and parliamentarians when many instances of crime and suicides reported across the country are found to be related to the content of the show.
