However, Kailash Satyarthi will not co-host the show.

The docu-drama aims at crime prevention by recreating a dramatised version of real life cases taken from Mr Satyarthi's 'Bachpan Bachao Andolan'

Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi will appear on popular crime based reality show Crime Patrol Satark as a guest on the special episodes on child labour and bride trafficking, and not as a co-host, Sony Entertainment Television has said.

The docu-drama series, which aims at crime prevention by recreating a dramatised version of real life cases, will narrate two stories, which are taken from Mr Satyarthi's organisation - 'Bachpan Bachao Andolan'.

Sony Entertainment Television, on which the show is aired, issued a statement to dismiss reports about Mr Satyarthi co-hosting the show with Anoop Soni.

"Sony Entertainment Television would like to clarify and bring to your kind attention that Kailash Satyarthi, founder of 'Bachpan Bachao Andolan', is only appearing as a guest on Crime Patrol."

"Mr Satyarthi co-hosting the show with Anoop Soni is factually erroneous and misleading to our viewers. We wish to reiterate the fact that his association with the show is only restricted to providing his perspective on the issue of child trafficking," read the statement.

The episodes will be aired from January 23-25 as Republic Day special episodes.
