Subhash Chandra questioned


New Delhi, Dec 8 (IANS) Delhi Police Saturday began questioning Zee Group chairman Subhash Chandra in a case filed against two journalists of his TV channel for an alleged Rs.100-crore extortion bid from a Jindal Group company.

Chandra and two of his associates appeared at the Delhi Police Crime Branch office at 2 p.m. two days after a Delhi court ordered him to join the probe into the case.

"The questioning is on," a senior police officer told IANS.

The court had Thursday granted Chandra interim protection against arrest till December 14.

Police twice served notice on Chandra in November asking him to join the investigation after the arrest of Zee editors Sudhir Chaudhury and Samir Ahluwalia for their alleged bid to extort Rs.100 crore from Congress MP Naveen Jindal’s company.
