Sakshi, TV5 & NTV trigger arson against Reliance

Congress activists on Thursday attacked Reliance outlets in many places in Andhra Pradesh after private TV news channels Sakshi TV, TV 5 and NTV aired a report allegedly filed by a Russian website that named Mukesh Ambani in relation with the death of Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy.

The report reportedly appeared in theeXile.ru, a Russian lifestyle magazine, on September 6 last year, four days after the death of the then Chief Minister in a helicopter crash. The report alleged that the crash was the result of a conspiracy. theeXile.ru was banned in Russia in 2008 and shifted to the United States where it is facing restrictions.

The report surfaced in local TV channels on Thursday evening, and triggered attacks on the outlets belonging to the company. The attacks on Reliance outlets took place in Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Guntur, Nellore, Khammam, Tirupathi and some other towns.

Police promptly posted personnel to guard the outlets. When asked whether any action would be initiated against TV channels for triggering such attacks, Hyderabad police commissioner B. Prasada Rao said, “We will look into the matter after verification.”
