New Delhi, Dec 12 (IANS) Zee Group chairman Subhash Chandra Wednesday told a Delhi court he was ready to undergo a lie-detector test while two journalists of his channel arrested for an alleged Rs.100-crore extortion bid refused to do so.

Sudhir Chaudhary, head of Zee News, and Samir Ahluwalia, head of Zee Business, both in judicial custody, were accused of demanding Rs.100 crore from the Jindal Group in the form of advertisements to the channel.

The journalists told Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Rao that they were opposed to the lie-detector test but open to giving samples for voice tests.
