In 2014, some senior Congress leaders were reportedly reluctant to contest the Lok Sabha elections. Manish Tewari and Kumari Selja, among those who did not contest in 2014, are very much in the battlefield this time.
The court, however, imposed certain conditions on Naveen Jindal after the application was opposed by special public prosecutor N K Matta and advocate Samvedna Verma on behalf of the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
In the extortion case filed in 2012, the Jindal-owned Jindal Steel & Power Ltd (JSPL) Friday wrote to the Deputy Commissioner of the Delhi Police Crime Branch, asking the police to “close the investigation” and “file a closure report” against the editorial heads of Zee News and Zee Business TV channels.
The agency has also filed charge sheet against Naveen Jindal and five others, for allegedly cheating the government by misrepresenting facts to bag the Madhya Pradesh-based Urtan North coal block. They have been summoned to appear in the court as accused on September 4
