The Delhi government has reportedly initiated action against channels, as yet unnamed, for airing doctored videos in the JNU case. (Earlier, the government had ordered a probe into the events of February 9 and after — the resulting report, with extensive annexures, is online in full.)
This should suit Zee boss Subhas Chandra to a T. He has talked of having served notice on Bloomberg (which, last heard from, hadn’t apologised) and also of “being in the process” of taking similar action against some Indian media houses.
So now he can go into court, get his actions validated, and there’s his basis for filing all the defamation cases he wants. No? Particularly since he believes that the Delhi government, which is initiating this action, has already cleared his channel:
I wonder why there’s still an iota of doubt around it,when the Gov. of Delhi, & legal authorities have given a clearance to the footage!
