New Delhi: Delhi police on Tuesday arrested Zee News Editor, Sudhir Caudhary and Zee Business Editor Sameer Ahluwalia on chages of blackmailing and criminal conspiracy. Sources said the editors have been arrested on the basis of an evidence provided by Member of Parliament ,Naveen Jindal .

Both will be produced before a city court on Wednesday, Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

“We strongly condemn the arbitary
and illegal action of Delhi police in arresting its two editors and for
initiating a malicious, illegal and motivated prosecution. We wish to
reiterate that no offence has been committed by members of staff,” Zee News said in a statement .


Jindal on October 26 in a press conference had alleged that Zee TV editors attempted to negotiate a deal—tantamount to blackmail—to back off on a story .
The allegations of the alleged deal were denied by the journalists.

Both Naveen Jindal and Zee News have also filed defamation cases against each other.
