ISLAMABAD – Electronic media regulator PEMRA has served show-cause notice on ARY News for its irresponsible reporting on Farishta Mohmand, a 10-year-old girl who was kidnapped, raped, and killed in Islamabad.
ARY ran a series of tickers that seemed to justify the rape and such journalism angered tweeple with #BoycottARYNews a top trend on Twitter on Wednesday.
PEMRA also issued a show-cause notice to News 5 for airing an improper audio call.
