Surveys at BBC Offices in India By IT Dept

Guwahati: The British public broadcaster BBC’s Indian headquarters are being investigated by income tax investigators, according to reports on Tuesday.

The actual survey perimeter is yet unknown.

The inspections take place weeks after the BBC aired a controversial documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi called “India: The Modi Question.”

The head of the Congress Jairam Ramesh claimed earlier today that the government is pursuing the BBC rather than giving in to an opposition demand for a joint parliamentary committee to look into the Adani-Hindenburg matter.

“We are demanding Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Adani matter and the government is behind BBC,” said Ramesh. 

Notably, on January 23, a group of HCU students organised a BBC documentary screening on Prime Minister Narendra Modi inside the campus.

In the Hyderabad Central University, the Student Islamic Organization (SIO) and Muslim Student Federation, also known as the Fraternity group organised a BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The screening was seen by more than 50 students from these groups.
