New Delhi: The ban on the telecast of controversial BBC documentary India's Daughter on the December 16, 2012 gang rape will continue as the Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the central government to place an advisory issued by it to ban the documentary.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice R.S. Endlaw posted the two public interest litigations (PILs) for revocation of the ban on the documentary's telecast for April 15.

"Place before this court the advisory issued on March 3 by the ministry of information and broadcasting," said the bench.
