After the government of India has banned India's Daughter, a new documentary that tells the story of the brutal gang rape and murder of the 23-year-old student in New Delhi in 2012, the British Broadcasting Corporation, or BBC, released it on the YouTube.

Quoting a senior Indian government official, NDTV reported that Video links to the documentary have been removed from Google's video sharing site, YouTube, and a legal notice has also been sent to the BBC.
Gouri Banerjee, a board member of Saheli, a Boston-based support and friendship group for South Asian women, said Leslee Udwin's extremely well made documentary should be used as an educational opportunity for Indian youth and expose the violence South Asian women encounter on a daily basis.
