Investigation (CBI) raids conducted on the NDTV offices and the residence of its promoters it is difficult to escape the conclusion that vendetta has been a guiding motive behind them This is not the first time that a government has sought to muzzle adversarial media in this crude fashion threatening the basic constitutional guarantee of free speech upon which our democracy rests Likening the situation to that of Emergency in the mid-1970s the editorial went on to add that the Modi Cabinet is ironically dominated by those leaders and "warriors" who are currently trying the muzzle the freedom of the press "Without going into the merits of the CBI case at this stage some prima facie observations can be made The CBI FIR self-admittedly based on a petition of a disgruntled former consultant alleges that NDTV did not fully repay a loan taken from ICICI Bank thereby causing a loss of Rs 48 crore to the bank What is most puzzling is ICICI a private bank has lodged no such complaint and NDTV in its rebuttal to the CBI FIR has released a letter from ICICI saying all dues were fully paid The question that then arises is why the CBI is so interested in a deal between a private firm (NDTV) and a private bank (ICICI) especially at a time when about Rs 10 lakh crore of debt remains overdue to public sector banks from a dozen large corporate groups who have worked the system for years and postponed loan repayments Something is clearly amiss here" Firstpost’s Ajay Kumar argues on similar angles in his article This piece however also mentions the fact that the raid was "vendetta politics" since senior journalist and NDTV anchor Nidhi Razdan asked BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra to leave her show ‘Left Right and Centre’ after the minister alleged that the channelalways had an agenda against the ruling party "The FIR reproduced the complaint verbatim filed by Quantum Securities Ltd The complaint is dated 28 April 2017 however date of the registration of the FIR is 2 June 2017 and there appears to be nothing more in the FIR apart from the complaint and it’s annexures 1 June 2017 is a day after NDTV’s Anchor Nidhi Razdan asked BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra to leave her programme after he accused her channel of having "an agenda" on air" In his piece Kumar goes on tosay that CBI had no business raiding the premises as "in this present complaint. relate to the Banking Regulation Act 1949 Prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002 Securities and Exchange Board of India Act 1992 Foreign Exchange Management Act 1999 do not fall within it’s ambit The CBI has limited jurisdiction in terms of the Delhi Police Special Establishment Act 1946 It can only investigate offences under the IPC and and under laws that have been notified under Section 3 of that that act Except the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988 none of the other charges in the complaint relate to matters which are within the jurisdiction or remit of the CBI" International media could not overlook the developments either Calling NDTV "one of the few liberal-leaning media outlets in India" The Guardian said that "India has a vibrant and diverse media environment but the watchdog group Freedom House ranks the country’s press as only "partly free" citing onerous defamation laws and frequent physical threats and intimidation faced by journalists particularly those who report in regional languages" BBC too reporting on the same issue noted that "Modi’s government has also been accused of cold-shouldering news organisations which criticise its policies" UK lawmakers vote
