An application filed in the CBI court alleges involvement of NDTV and P Chidambaram in bribe and money laundering of Rs. 2,000 crores in 2G scam. They also state misuse and abuse of power. The application was filed in Patiala House Courts by an IT Commissioner, SK Srivastava. It states that a dummy company of NDTV at Holland is being used for alleged money laundering via Mauritius back to India.
NDTV has reacted to these charges as baseless and has filed a defamation suit against the person who filed the application. “NDTV has just filed a defamation suit against a man making wild allegations about NDTV – and about “prostitution in the IT dept,” tweeted Vikrama Chandra, CEO of NDTV.
