ISLAMABAD: Capital TV, taken off air two days ago after a guest on one of their live shows insulted the Army chief, was allowed to resume programming Saturday.
Reports say, the decision to let the channel back on air came after high-level negotiations and a written apology submitted by the television management with the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA).

Capital TV, launched on April 10, is headed by Basit Sheikh.
