Indian minister charges exec corruption at net

Web CEO fires back with suit

DELHI, India — Minister of state for broadcasting M.A. Naqvi has accused S.S. Gill, CEO of pubcaster Doordarshan, and some top broadcasting officials of corruption and hinted of a government probe into the matter.

At a press conference in Delhi on Thursday, Naqvi said the government has already instituted a departmental inquiry into the case and had gathered evidence about the involvement of several execs.

According to the minister, the officials took money in connection with the purchase of hardware and software from international companies and in connection with the export of Indian programs. Naqvi also said that illegal cash transactions took place while allotting timeslots for series from various production houses.

Doordashan’s Gill fired back by writing a letter to information and broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj asserting that he was well within his limits to have ordered the purchase of equipment. Gill also filed a defamation suit against the broadcasting minister.
