The court fixed the matter for further proceedings on February 15.
Chaudhary, who filed his complaint through his counsel Vijay Aggarwal, had earlier said Jindal and JSPL officials had made "deliberately false" statements and registered a "false case" against him in the alleged Rs. 100-crore extortion bid incident.
The court ordered the police to seize the minutes of the meetings and other documents of the Broadcast Editors Association (BEA) regarding “termination of the membership of the complainant (Chaudhary) and his removal from the post of Treasurer of the BEA”.
Chaudhary and Zee Business Editor Samir Ahluwalia were arrested on November 27, 2012 on a complaint by Jindal's firm that they had demanded R100 crore as a deal for not airing "negative" news reports against JSPL, in connection with the coal block allocation scandal.
