Ensure identity of security men is not revealed, says HC to Govt

Shocked by the alleged disclosure of the identity of paramilitary personnel operating in sensitive areas and their family by a television channel, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the Centre to examine the matter and ensure safeguards before telecast.

"It is a serious matter. How can the identity of a soldier be disclosed? This is really very shocking," Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva said.

It directed the Ministries of Information and Broadcasting and Home Affairs to examine the episodes of a TV show and take steps to ensure that the identity of paramilitary personnel and their family members are not revealed, as it could jeopardise their lives.
