New Delhi, 25th May, 2013: Zee News is all set to re-launch one of its most popular shows- Crime Files. It was one of India`s first crime news shows that set the trend for crime shows to follow. Crime Files will now be showcased on Zee News starting today and will be telecasted every Saturday at 10.30pm.

The USP of the show is not only to keep viewers alert but also apprise them to take adequate advance measures to secure and safeguard themselves and their families.
The crime show was first started in 2002 as `Crime File` on Zee News and was an instant hit. The show was a pioneer in making investigative and crime reporting popular in the country and taking it to the masses. Zee News is content that Naveen Kumar, an investigative journalist would take the mantle of anchoring the show.
Alok Agrawal, CEO, Zee News Ltd. said, “We feel that it is our duty to inform, engage and empower our viewers about what they should know about their environment and its whereabouts; including crime and how one can safeguard oneself from such incidents. Crime Files is a show which goes into each and every angle and details of the crime. The pioneer show was started a decade ago and was very popular. Reviving the show once again will definitely create the required awareness among its audience.”
