Posted on Thu , 25 Oct '12
Jindal Steel and Power Ltd (JSPL) Chairman Naveen Jindal today filed a case of criminal extortion against Zee News for undertaking a sting operation of his company's alleged involvement in scam-tainted coal block allocations. Jindal alleged that he was asked for cash to stop the publication of a negative story on him. In a dramatic press conference here, Jindal released video recordings of a counter-sting operation that showed a conversation between a Zee News reporter and his team members. Jindal said that the channel had been broadcasting false stories about the company since 24th September.
