Chennai, March 18 IANS | 7 months ago

The Madras High Court Tuesday restrained two media companies - Zee Media Corporation and News Nation Network - from publishing or broadcasting for two weeks any stories linking Indian cricket team skipper M.S. Dhoni with any betting or spot/match fixing incident.


The court, in its interim order, also restrained the media companies from insinuating Dhoni's honesty and integrity in a Rs.100 crore defamation case filed by the cricketer.

Dhoni had filed the suit against the media companies and also suspended Tamil Nadu police official G. Sampath Kumar.

The Indian captain in his suit had said that since Feb 11 Zee Media Corporation's Zee News Channel, the channel's editor and business head Sudhir Chaudhary colluded with the police official Kumar to telecast false news reports.

The reports insinuated that Dhoni was involved in betting and match/spot fixing cricket matches.

He said News Nation Network broadcast false information that he was summoned by the Tamil Nadu Police.

According to Dhoni, the news reports were about Chennai Super Kings team in the Indian Premier League led by him. The reports marred his reputation and image worldwide.
