    NEW DELHI: Zee News editor Sudhir Choudhary and business head Sameer Ahulwalia were arrested on Tuesday for a sting operation against Congress MP Naveen Jindal. Both the journalists will be produced in a Delhi court tomorrow.

    Earlier, Broadcast Editors' Association (BEA) suspended its treasurer, editor of Zee News Sudhir Choudhary, in the wake of allegations by Congress MP Naveen Jindal that Choudhary had tried to extract Rs 100 crore as advertising commitments for his channel in exchange for dropping reports on alleged irregular allocations of coal blocks to companies belonging Jindal.

    The Congress MP had lodged a complaint with Delhi Police, submitting it audio and video footage of a sting operation in which he claimed to have caught Choudhary and a colleague of his, Samir Ahluwalia, seeking a Rs 100-crore advertising deal over five years from representatives of Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) in return for dropping further reports on coal block allocations to JSPL.

    All news channel forgot about coal allocation scam but except one who continuously showing program about coal allocation scam and that channel was Zee news and I still remember that Zee news started a poll in which they asked that why India forgot about coal allocation scam. Now I understood that why Zee news didn't forgot that scam.

    I did not know that.

    Anyway I don't see Zee.

    However, if they have tried extortion, then they should face the music.

    Even from Tehelka times, king of sting, I hate this sting operations. This operations have no credibility at all. This 'sting operation' thing should be nullified and made void by the Supreme Court of India. No case, no evidence and nothing can be make out of on a basis of sting operation in any case.

    I think it's all started when Jindal hit cameraman in one fuction when Zee reporter tried to ask him Coal scam related questions.

    We know how IBN group, NDTV and others got the Commonwealth game adverts, Government ads. Don't be surprised if other MSM don't support Zee group.
