Following serious backlash on a news report regarding a traffic violation, Swarnavahini today removed the video it had uploaded on Youtube.
The video showed a cameraman zooming in on a driver who was stopped by a policemen for a minor traffic offense. The cameraman recorded the incident and the exchange between the policeman and the driver.
The driver complained at the blatant violation of privacy by the cameraman.
