December 08:

Two Zee editors were today remanded back in two-day police custody by a Delhi court to enable the investigators to confront them with Zee group head Subhash Chandra and his son in a case of alleged extortion bid of Rs.100 crore from Congress MP Naveen Jindal's company.

Two days police custody is granted," Metropolitan Magistrate Ankit Singla ordered.

Chandra and his son Puneet Goenka, MD of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, today joined the investigation
following the notice issued by the Delhi Police.

They joined the probe after a court on December 6 had granted them interim protection from arrest till December 14.

The Delhi Police had moved the application before the court seeking police remand of the arrested Zee News head
Sudhir Chaudhary and Zee Business Editor Samir Ahluwalia, whose bail plea were rejected.

They were arrested on November 27 and were subjected to custodial interrogation for two days before being sent to
judicial custody on November 30.

Additional Public Prosecutor Rajiv Mohan sought three-day further police remand for the two Zee editors saying, "They were remanded in police custody on November 28 for two days.

"During the police custody efforts were made to join Zee group chairman Subhash Chandra and Zee Entertainment
Enterprises Ltd MD Puneet Goenka in the investigation as accused persons had to be confronted with them to reach to the bottom of the criminal conspiracy," he said.

As both Chairman and MD were out of the country, a request was made to remand both Sudhir Chaudhary and Samir
Ahluwalia to judicial custody," the prosecutor submitted.
