The Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Vaikom, has issued a directive to the police to register a crime and initiative investigation against three news channels on a criminal miscellanies petition (CMP) alleging airing of obscene visuals. The directive from Judicial First Class Magistrate Prabhash Lal comes against the CMP filed by Ambarish G. Vasu, of Parvanam House, Vaikom, seeking criminal proceedings against the airing of uncensored video clippings in connection with the news story on charges against Jose Thettayil, MLA.

The court directed the police to proceed against the seven respondents mentioned in the complaint. They include managing directors and news editors of the three channels and also the producer of the news-based programme ‘FIR’ aired by the Asianet news channel.

The complaint sought action against the channels under relevant sections of the Indian Penal code, IT Act, and the Indecent Representation of Woman (Prohibition) Act.
