ZEE Media files criminal defamation case against TMC MP Mahua Moitra for calling them Chor and paid news

Moitra had called the owner of the Zee News a thief and those associated with the channel as 'uneducated' and 'budbak' (stupid).

Zee Media Corporation Ltd has filed a criminal defamation case against Trinamool Congress leader and Member of Parliament Mahua Moitra for allegedly calling the media house ‘chor’ (thief) and ‘paid news’.

The matter was heard today by the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal of the Patiala House Court in New Delhi. Advocate Vijay Aggarwal who was appearing on behalf of the complainant played a video of Moitra before the court wherein she was seen calling Zee News as ‘chor’ and ‘paid news’. Aggarwal told the court that Moitra had called the owner of the Zee News a thief and those associated with the channel as ‘uneducated’ and ‘budbak’ (stupid). The next hearing of the matter is scheduled to be held on August 1.

Moitra had filed a criminal defamation case against Zee News journalist Sudhir Chaudhary on July 15. She had alleged that Cahudhary claimed that her maiden speech in the Parliament in which she had listed out seven signs of approaching Fascism in the country, was plagiarised. Moitra had become the darling of the ‘Liberal Left’ after she delivered the speech.

Before that, she had submitted a breach of privilege motion against Chaudhary on July 4 alleging that he had falsely reported that her maiden speech in the Parliament was plagiarised. However, the Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla did not accept the breach of privilege motion submitted by Moitra.
