New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday asked Zee Network promoter Subhash Chandra to join the investigation into the extortion claims made against it by the Jindal Group.

Zee News has vehemently denied all allegations of extortion levelled against its two journalists and said police were being forced to act on the matter under pressure from Congress MP Naveen Jindal and his associates.

Sudhir Chaudhary, head of Zee News, and Samir Ahluwalia, head of Zee Business, were arrested here on Tuesday on the charges of allegedly attempting to extort Rs.100 crore from Jindal's company in exchange for not filing news reports linking his firm to the coal blocks allocation.
