PTV News blocked in IHK

ISLAMABAD (May 09 2008): In occupied Kashmir, the Srinagar district magistrate has extended the ban on beaming of Pakistani television channels through cable TV to the PTV News as well.

The cable operators in Srinagar, who were earlier directed to stop airing four Pakistani channels, namely PTV World, Geo, Aaj and ARY, were on Tuesday asked by the magistrate that PTV News too should be blocked with immediate effect, Kashmir Media Service reported.

“Since the earlier order issued on April 21 mentioned only four Pakistani channels we continued to show PTV News,” said Irfan Bakshi, who holds rights of cable TV network in occupied Kashmir. Kashmir cable TV operators had, in protest against the earlier order, blocked out all Indian and international channels for two days but resumed their beaming later on.
