A controversy erupted today over a video footage showing semi-naked Jarawa tribal women in Andaman and Nicobar Islands allegedly being ordered to dance before tourists, prompting the Centre to seek a report from the Union Territory administration.

In its preliminary report, the administration said it will initiate prosecution against the videographer involved in the coverage for a British newspaper for inciting the tribals to dance in front of tourists.

The footage that surfaced apparently to bring to fore the exploitation of the Jarawa tribe, who were allegedly forced to dance before tourists in return for food, was condemned as obnoxious and disgusting by the Union Tribal Affairs Minister, Mr V. Kishore Chandra Deo.

According to reports, there are just 403 surviving members of the Jarawa tribe who live in reserve forests in south Andamans.
