December 17:

A Delhi court Monday granted bail to two Zee TV journalists arrested on an extortion complaint filed by Congress MP Naveen Jindal, who owns Jindal Power and Steel Ltd.

Additional Sessions Judge Raj Rani Mitra granted bail to the two and asked them to furnish a personal bond of Rs.50,000 each and surety of the same amount.

Sudhir Chaudhary, head of Zee News, and Samir Ahluwalia, head of Zee Business, were arrested for allegedly demanding Rs.100 crore from the Jindal Group in the form of advertisements to the channel.

Police booked both the journalists under Sections 384 (extortion), 120(b)(criminal conspiracy) and 511 (attempting to commit offences punishable with imprisonment for life or other imprisonment) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Before arresting Chaudhary and Ahluwalia, police also charged them under Section 420 (cheating).
