Zee News Ltd to pursue Shri Naveen Jindal’s aforementioned conduct in Hon’ble High Court
New Delhi: In a case filed by Zee News Ltd (ZNL) seeking CBI intervention against Shri Naveen Jindal, MP, for invoking Chief Justice (Retd) JS Verma, Hon’ble Chairperson, News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA), the order released on Wednesday has stated (emphasis added):
ZNL counsel Shri Vijay Aggarwal said he would now pursue the matter in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi and said “The court has expressed doubts whether calling NBSA, in view of it being a private body, is unethical, criminal or not. Also, in view of the investigation being ordered, it may bring disrepute to NBSA and might affect pendency of civil suit defamation before Hon’ble High Court of Mumbai.”
