India Orders Search of BBC Offices After Release of Documentary Critical of Narendra Modi

HeadlineFeb 15, 2023

Indian tax officials raided the BBC’s offices in New Delhi and Mumbai for a second day today amid an ongoing firestorm over a new BBC documentary critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Modi has banned the film, which in part covers his time as chief minister of Gujarat, when he was accused of complicity in the deadly 2002 anti-Muslim riots which killed an estimated 1,000 people. Students have been arrested for showing or attempting to show the film.
