Nine CBFC members resign citing interference, corruption in I&B Ministry

Government sources said the members who have quit were on their way out anyway adding that a new censor board will be announced soon.

Members who have resigned are Ira Bhaskar, Lora Prabhu, Pankaj Sharma, Rajeev Masand, TG Thyagarajan, Mamang Dai, Shubhra Gupta, Shaji N Karun.

Ira Bhaskar said she decided to resign in support of Leela Sampson. "I have decided to resign so have other members and have written a joint letter saying the board hasn't been functioning properly. The Chairperson is not there, so the board constituted with her has no meaning."

She made it clear that the resignation has nothing to do with Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's film 'MSG: The Messenger of God'
