BBC banned in tiger reserves

Stunned by the BBC expose in the Kaziranga National Park, the National Tiger Conservation Authority has banned the British media in the country’s tiger forest with immediate effect.

According to sources, NCTA has banned BBC’s south Asia correspondent Justin Rowlatt from filming in these tiger reserves who in his recent documentary tried to justify the rhino conservation at the cost of human rights.
