Zee editor wants statement filmed

New Delhi, Jan 5, 2013 DHNS

Zee News editor Sudhir Chaudhary, facing notice from police to join probe after the channel aired the interview of December 16 gang rape victim’s male friend, on Saturday moved a Delhi court pleading that his statement to police be video recorded.

Without specially mentioning in its order if Chaudhary’s statement would be video recorded, the court asked Delhi Police to proceed in accordance with the law.

“I have heard the counsel for the accused. Station house officer of Vasant Vihar police station is directed to proceed as per law,” metropolitan magistrate Namrita Aggarwal ordered.

The application moved on behalf of Zee News editor said he has been asked to join probe on Saturday evening and a case has already been slapped against him.

“The applicant has received notice for attending investigation at Vasant Vihar police station. He prays that his statement made under section 161 (3) CrPC be recorded by audio video electronic means,” Chaudhary’s counsel Vijay Aggarwal submitted before the court.

He said, “The interview of the male friend had highlighted the irresponsible attitude of police towards the victims, so how can the same police register the case against the channel and investigate it. It cannot be a fair probe.”

Police have registered a case against Zee News for revealing the identity of the gang rape victim by carrying an interview of her male friend who was the lone witness in the case.
