TNI Bureau: In a significant development, bail pleas of Zee News Editor Sudhir Chaudhary and Zee Business Editor Sameer Ahluwalia have been dismissed by the Saket court in connection with the alleged extortion case filed by Naveen Jindal and his company JSPL.
Jindal had accused the duo of trying to extort Rs 100 crore from the company with a promise that Zee News would stop airing coalgate stories against JSPL. Sudhir Chaudhary and Sameer Ahluwalia were sent to judicial custody till December 14. They are currently lodged in Tihar Jail.
It’s really surprising that no media houses in the coutry bothered to highlight the plight of the Editors who are being held on filmsy charges.
