ISLAMABAD - The electronic media's regulatory body Friday approved a fine of Rs1 million on Samaa Television for airing a vulgar text message during a crime re-enactment program last summer.
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) while approving the fine also ordered the channel to air a public apology and run tickers between 6pm and 12 midnight repeatedly. The program 'Wardaat' aired on July 22 featured reconstruction of a crime that involved a boy sending an 'extremely vulgar' text message to a girl.

PEMRA's Council of Complaints, Sindh that met earlier this month had recommended the fine.
