Congress leader Kapil Sibal and wife to be sued by journalist Barkha Dutt for fraud and cheating in Tiranga TV case

The National Commission for women had taken cognisance of Barkha Dutt's complaint against Tiranga TV promoters. It had also clarified that it is only taking up the matter of outraging the modesty of women.

There seems to be no end to the fighting between Congress leader Kapil Sibal and ‘journalist’ Barkha Dutt over the Tiranga TV fiasco, as latter has now decided to initiate criminal and civil proceedings against Kapil Sibal and his wife for cheating, fraud and refusal to honour the contract.

In a tweet, controversial ‘journalist’ Barkha Dutt, once the blue-eyed girl of the Congress ecosystem, threatened her former boss Kapil Sibal and his wife Promila Sibal for cheating and refusing to uphold the contract.

In her tweet, Barkha Dutt said that she intends to initiate proceedings so that the staff of Tiranga TV, whom she claims to support, fully get their due compensations of 3 months after they were arbitrarily sacked by Tiranga TV promoted by Kapil Sibal.

Just yesterday Barkha Dutt had written a complaint to National Commission for Women against Tiranga TV promoter Promila Sibal accusing her of abusing female staff members of the channel including Barkha Dutt. She had alleged that senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal and his wife-Promila Sibal had referred to the female employees of their channel Tiranga TV as Kutiya or Bitch.

The National Commission for women had taken cognisance of Barkha Dutt’s complaint against Tiranga TV promoters. It had also clarified that it is only taking up the matter of outraging the modesty of women.

On July 15, in a series of tweets, Barkha Dutt had alleged that journalists working at Tiranga TV were abruptly sacked, without any prior notice and they were not offered 6-months severance payout.

Barkha Dutt had also said that Kapil Sibal had threatened her of defamation suit for calling him Mallya. She had compared him with the fugitive liquor baron for not paying due compensation to fired employees and going to London. Dutt had said that she refuses to withdraw the comment, and will fight the case if required. Barkha Dutt had also accused Kapil Sibal’s wife of being insensitive to the plight of employees.

Later, in the evening, the crisis took an ugly turn when Kapil Sibal appointed bouncers at the Tiranga TV office to intimidate journalists who were sitting on a peaceful protest against the channel’s unprofessional conduct. Employees were apparently on an all-night sit-in dharna to demand a 6-month payout.
