Zee chief gets shield against arrest till Dec 14

New Delhi, Dec 6, 2012 (IANS)

 A Delhi court Thursday granted interim protection against arrest to Zee group chairman Subhash Chandra till Dec 14 in a case of an alleged extortion bid of Rs.100 crore by two journalists of his TV channel.

Additional Session Judge Raj Rani Mitra granting the shield against arrest on the anticipatory bail pleas of Chandra and Zee group's managing director Puneet Goenka.

Both of them were told to deposit their passport with the investigating officer and join the probe. Chandra and Goenka filed anticipatory bail pleas Wednesday.

Police had twice served notice on Chandra last month asking him to join investigation after the arrest of Zee editors Sudhir Chaudhury and Samir Ahluwalia for their alleged bid to extort Rs.100 crore from Congress MP Naveen Jindal's company.


Chaudhary, head of Zee News, and Ahluwalia, head of Zee Business, were arrested Nov 27 on charges of allegedly attempting to extort money from Jindal's company in exchange for not filing news reports linking his firm to irregular coal blocks allocation. The company filed an extortion case.
