TV station broadcast porn instead of news

Viewers tuning in for the evening news in India were shocked when they were left watching a Russian porn movie.

Angry residents in Kailaras, who wanted to watch an English-language news report, blame the mix-up on technicians from the Kailaras relay station.

They believe the workers had been using the station’s facilities to watch XXX films broadcast from Russia.

Hundreds of locals took to the streets afterwards demanding the technicians be sacked.

TV station regional manager Man Singh Verma said: “An initial probe confirms negligence on the part of the relay station staff in transmitting pornographic material from a Russian TV channel instead of the news from Indian channel DD-1.

“We are taking statements from staff members and punitive action will be taken against those responsible.”
