Two Zee editors to be produced before court

New Delhi, Dec 5, 2012 (PTI): 1:50 IST
A Delhi court has issued warrants to produce two Zee News editors before it on December 8 on a plea by police for their custody.

Police have sought their custody to confront them with Zee Group chairperson Subhash Chandra and his son in an alleged bid to extort Rs 100 crore from Congress MP Naveen Jindal’s company.

Meanwhile, Chandra on Wednesday moved an anticipatory bail plea before a local court, a day after Delhi Police asked him to join investigations.

Zee Group had sought anticipatory bail for both Chandra and its managing director Puneet Goenka, according to Chandra’s lawyer Vijay Aggarwal.

Metropolitan magistrate Neha issued the production warrants, directing jail authorities to produce Zee News head Sudhir Chaudhary and Zee Business editor Samir Ahluwalia before her.

“Issue production warrant to accused Sudhir and Samir for December 8,” the court said.

The order came on an application moved by Delhi Police crime branch on Tuesday, seeking a day’s custody of the two accused for confronting them with Essel Group chairperson Chandra and his son Punit Goenka, managing director of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd.

Both Chaudhary and Ahluwalia, presently lodged in Tihar, have been booked under section 384, 420, 120 B and 511 of the IPC.

The court had rejected their bail pleas on Monday, saying they have not given any new ground for release in their fresh applications. Their first bail pleas were dismissed on November 28.
