PGurus alleges illegal routing of money by NDTV, Rao calls it "absolutely rubbish"

The battle between NDTV and seems to be intensifying with every passing day. On December 28, published a story purportedly containing a handwritten note submitted by NDTV Group CEO KVL Narayan Rao before income tax authorities. The website claimed that the note was an admission that “NDTV laundered money through Netherlands and violated the FDI norms” in the country.

Labelling the report as “absolutely rubbish”, Rao hit back at the website claiming innocence. “I don’t think I have said anything that is contradictory to the law,” Rao told exchange4media. He noted that the letter was in the handwriting of the income tax officer and not his.

According to Rao’s version of events, there was an electricity failure in the income tax office the day he visited them. Therefore, the officer on duty apologized and requested that the statement is taken down in written. “The only thing which is in my handwriting is the declaration at the bottom,” he said.

Wondering as to why nobody else writes about the allegations levelled by, Rao sounded unsure about their agenda. “When somebody is targeting, there are other kinds of motives that come into play,” he mentioned. The incident comes just two days after NDTV published a statement on its website terming as “Post-Truth Gurus”.
