After NDTV India, the government has ordered that an Assam-based news channel be taken off air for a day, following the recommendations of a high- level panel which felt it had “violated” guidelines on more than one occasion.

An I&B Ministry order dated November 2, has sought that the channel ‘News Time Assam,’ be taken off air on November 9.

One of the allegations is that it revealed the identity of a minor who had been tortured while working as a domestic help.
