The Chief Executive Officer and four media persons of a private TV channel involved in telecast of a purported sleaze audio clip which led to the resignation of Kerala minister A.K Saseendran, were remanded to judicial custody by a court in Thiruvananthapuram.
They were produced before the Judge at his residence, who remanded them in judicial custody for 14 days.
Meanwhile, a woman journalist, with whom Saseendran is alleged to have conversed in the audio clip, filed a sexual harassment complaint against him before the Chief Judicial Magistrate.
She also alleged that he misbehaved with her.
Police had last week registered an FIR against the nine persons, including the CEO, on a complaint by the youth wing of Nationalist Congress Party, for airing “obscene conversation”.
The channel on March 26 had aired the sleaze audio clip which led to the resignation of Saseendran, NCP representative in the LDF cabinet within hours.
