HYDERABAD: Nepal has banned all Indian news channels, except
DD News, for alleged misinformation against the nation. Sources claim that cable providers in Nepal have stopped receiving signals of Indian news channels. Nepal's government spokesperson, Yuvaraj Khatiwada, said: "We call on everyone not to spread the news that infringes the sovereignty and self-respect of Nepalese, including the media of neighbouring nations. We may seek legal and political remedies."
Previously, Nepal has updated its map, which depicts some Indian territories as part of it. On 13 June, the Nepalese Parliament unanimously adopted the Constitution Amendment Bill, paving the way for an updated political-administrative map to be adapted.
