क्‍या अपने वरिष्‍ठों के निर्देशन में ब्‍लैकमेल कर रहे थे इंडिया टीवी एवं एबीपी न्‍यूज के पत्रकार?

क्‍या पत्रकारिता का इतना बेड़ा गर्क हो चुका है कि अब पत्रकार सेक्‍स वीडियो बनाकर ब्‍लैकमेल करने पर उतारू हो गए हैं. क्‍या इसमें उपर के सीनियरों का भी कोई रोल है? क्‍या इंडिया टीवी और एबीपी न्‍यूज के रिपोर्टर इससे पहले भी लोगों को ब्‍लैमेल कर चुके हैं? क्‍या इस तरह के काम वरिष्‍ठों के निर्देशन में किए जाते हैं? क्‍या ऐसा भी होता है कि अगर सौदा पट गया तो ब्‍लैमेलिंग की खबरें नहीं दिखाई जाती हैं और सौदा नहीं पटा तो खबर टीवी स्‍क्रीन पर. 

इंडिया टीवी भले ही खुद को न्‍यूज चैनल कहता हो पर इस चैनल को वैसे भी कोई गंभीरता से नहीं लेता यह बात प्रधानमंत्री मनमोहन सिंह की एक प्रेस कांफ्रेंस में साबित हो चुकी है, जब इस चैनल का एक भी बंदा नहीं बुलाया गया, यानी इस चैनल को आम जनता तो आम जनता सरकार भी गंभीरता से नहीं लेती, लेकिन एबीपी न्‍यूज का पत्रकार ऐसा कैसे कर सकता है, जहां शाजी जमां जैसा खाटी पत्रकार नेतृत्‍व कर रहा हो. तमाम ऐसे सवाल मीडिया हलक में उठ रहे हैं. इंडियन एक्‍सप्रेस ने भी खबर को प्रमुखता से उठाया है. आप पढि़ए इंडियन एक्‍सप्रेस की खबर. 

Two television reporters accused of sting and blackmail: ‘Rs 20 lakh or we air sex tape’

The owner of a garage in south Delhi has accused two television journalists and the head of an NGO of trying to extort Rs 20 lakh from him after having secretly filmed him with women who he says were prostitutes.

A city court Thursday directed the police to record the complainant’s statement and seize the recording of a purported conversation he had with the alleged blackmailers.

The journalists — Bhumika Sharma, a correspondent with India TV, and Srivastava, a senior special correspondent with ABP News — have been suspended, the two news organisations said late on Thursday night.

A statement issued by Delhi Police named the complainant as Vijay Kumar, a 53-year-old “car mechanic who runs a shop in the name of Motor craft in Vasant Vihar”.

Kumar, the statement said, had complained that “one Manu Sharma… who runs an NGO in the name of People’s Foundation, has provided girls for sexual intercourse at his address at Satya Niketan and prepared video clips with the help of two brothers Hunny and Sunny (both of whom are in the business of property dealing)”.

“They are threatening to extort Rs 20 lakh by putting him in fear of implicating him in a false case of rape. One Ms Bhumika, an employee of India TV and Mr Pardeep working with ABP News also threatened the complainant to… settle the matter otherwise they said they would telecast the recording on TV,” the statement said.

Police sources said Kumar had recorded his phone conversation with the accused, in the course of which they had allegedly tried to blackmail him. The CD containing the purported conversation would be sent for forensic examination, the sources said. They said police were investigating the possible involvement of a third journalist in the case.

Reached for a comment, Vinod Kapri, managing editor of India TV, said, “We are investigating the case. Pending the inquiry, we have suspended her (Bhumika) with immediate effect. India TV has a zero-tolerance policy on such issues.”

ABP News group editor Shazi Zaman said the organisation had started an internal inquiry. “Pending the inquiry report, the journalist’s contract has been discontinued with immediate effect. We are also seeking more information from the police,” he said.
