Zee chairman Subhash Chandra agrees for lie detector test, two editors refuse
Zee Group chairman Subhash Chandra on Wednesday agreed to face a lie detector test in connection with a case related to a Rs.100 crore extortion bid on a firm owned by steel industrialist and MP Naveen Jindal.
Chandra's lawyers informed Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Rao that their client is ready to undergo lie detector test subject to being informed properly about its procedure.
However, Zee editors Sudhir Chaudhary and Samir Ahluwalia, who have been arrested in connection with the case and are presently in police custody, have refused to undergo the lie detector test but agreed to give their voice samples.
Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Rao has issued a production warrant to the editors for tomorrow and also sought Chandra's presence in court.
