Two senior journalists of Zee News have been arrested in Delhi in connection with a sting operation that the channel had allegedly conducted on steel tycoon and Congress MP Naveen Jindal.


Zee Group Editor Sudhir Chaudhary and the Head of Business Samir Ahluwalia will be produced in a court in Saket on Wednesday. On October 25, Mr Jindal had showed a video recording of meetings with Zee TV executives and claimed this to be proof that they were trying to extort money from him.

Mr Jindal said the TV channel told his company’s executives that if they did not spend Rs. 100 crore on advertising, the channel would run unfavourable stories about how his firm was allocated coal fields.
