The Indian government has ordered a popular news channel to be taken off air for a day as a penalty for its coverage of an attack on Indian soldiers in January.

Seven soldiers and six armed fighters were killed in the attack. Officials said the channel would go off air from Wednesday as an inter-ministerial panel found the channel had revealed details of the government operation and locations within the base.     

NDTV rejected the accusation, saying its coverage was "particularly balanced" and it had been "singled out since every channel and newspaper had similar coverage."

The order against NDTV India is the first such ban on a television station for its reporting of an attack on the state.

Entire nation is in anxiety for current situation of the country.   Media right is in danger.
