The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (Judge Amit Bansal) today delivered a stinging reversal to false and concocted case made out against the officials of Zee News by Member of Parliament (MP) Navin Jindal and JSPL.
The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate refused to take cognizance of the Chargesheet against FIR No. 240/12 filed by Delhi Police against Zee News officials.
In light of serious objections and pleas on facts raised by Zee News Counsel Vijay Aggrawal, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate returned the aforementioned chargesheet and ordered Delhi Police to investigate the matter once again.
Also, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate ordered that the investigation this time should be carried out by an officer of the Delhi Police no less than the rank of Asst Commissioner of Police.
"We have no doubt that if the matter is investigated fairly, it is the complainants who will be prosecuted," said Zee News Counsel Vijay Aggrawal.
The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate has ordered Delhi Police to report back on December 2, 2013. (ANI)
