New Delhi : A Delhi court on Saturday reserved its order on two Zee editors’ plea to direct police “not to force” them to read extracts from the transcript of a video clip of a sting, done by Jindal firm’s officials, while taking their voice sample in the alleged Rs 100 crore extortion bid case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Mukesh Kumar reserved the order on pleas by Zee News Editor Sudhir Chaudhary and Zee Business Editor Samir Ahluwalia for January 4.

The editors in their plea said the video which is the subject matter of probe is in possession of the police and they cannot ask them to read out its transcript. “Except this, we can read out anything else,” they told the court.—PTI
