Meanwhile, police sources said they had questioned the two editors about why they are alleged to have raised the demand for advertising to Rs 100 crore from Rs 25 crore, why they allegedly called Chandra immediately after their first meeting with JSPL officials and why they did not report the alleged bribe offer from JSPL to authorities.
The editors, the sources said, claimed that they were conducting a counter-sting and wanted to see how far JSPL would go. The editors are also believed to have said that they did not report the alleged bribe offer as they thought they could "handle it themselves", the sources alleged, and claimed that the two were evasive about some other aspects during questioning.
