Last week the Delhi government moved court against three news channels --Zee News, News X and India News that had allegedly aired doctored footage of the Jawaharlal Nehru University protests. The video showed a group of students allegedly shouting a pro-Pakistan slogan.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass, after hearing the submissions of the Delhi Government's counsel, fixed the matter for consideration on the complaint on May 26. The counsel for Zee News opposed the complaint on technical grounds. The complaint states that the footage was largely inaudible. The complaint accused Zee News and its Editor, Sudhir Chaudhary of doctoring the footage to suggest that the crowd was shouting ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.
The other accused in the complaint are Subhash Chandra of ZEE Media Corporation, News X and India News.
