Zee Chief Subhash Chandra Moves Anticipatory Bail
New: Delhi: Zee group chairman Subhash Chandra moved a plea for anticipatory bail before a Delhi court, barely days after he assured police of joining the probe into an alleged extortion bid by his channel's two editors, said a lawyer.
Advocate Vijay Aggarwal, confirmed that both Chandra and the Zee group's managing director Puneet Goenka had moved anticipatory bail.
Chandra Monday assured Delhi Police that he would join the investigation within 96 hours.
Police had twice served notice to Chandra last month asking him to join investigations after the arrest of Zee editors Sudhir Chaudhury and Samir Ahluwalia for their alleged extortion bid of 100 crore from Congress MP Naveen Jindal's company.
Sudhir Chaudhary, head of Zee News, and Samir Ahluwalia, head of Zee Business, were arrested earlier last month on charges of allegedly attempting to extort money Jindal's company in exchange for not filing news reports linking his firm to the coal blocks allocation.
