The Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) has issued a notice to Star World for airing a homosexual encounter in the TV series Grey's Anatomy in June, The Times of India reported.
The channel has been asked to respond by December 1.
The notice to the channel for "denigrating women" was issued following complaints from the ministry of information and broadcasting (I&B) which said that the scenes are "indecent, vulgar".
The TOI report further states, "After viewing the episode, BCCC -headed by Justice (retired) Mukul Mudgal -was of the opinion that the content appeared to be explicit and objectionable. The council issued a notice for submission of written reply to the channel, sources said."
The particular episode in the soap, which attracted the notice of the BCCC, takes place between a female doctor and her male colleague. The doctor, who says she has failed to please her partner, asks her colleague to teach her how to satisfy a woman's physical needs, adds the report.
