Jindal Group incidentEdit
The channel was tried for allegedly extorting Rs 100 crore from the Jindal Group and two senior journalists have been arrested so far. Naveen Jindal accused Zee News of trying to extort Rs 100 crore from him for not airing stories against his company in Coal Scam. Zee News refuted the charges and made counter charges of Jindal offering them Rs 25 crore to halt their investigations against Jindal Steel in the coal scam.
Allegations of fabricationsEdit
Zee News reported that some of the students from Democratic Students' Union (DSU) raised slogans such as "Bharat Ki Barbadi" ("Destruction of India") and " Pakistan Zindabad" ("long live Pakistan")  In a letter Vishwa Deepak, who later resigned from the channel after expressing reservations over its 'biased coverage' alleged that "Our biases made us hear Bhartiya Court Zindabad as Pakistan Zindabad." ("long live Indian courts" as "long live Pakistan."). After Delhi police report it was claimed that footage was genuine. After getting authentication by forensic lab of CBI it is almost confirmed that vedio footage telecasted by the channel was authentic.  In response, Sudhir Chaudhary, Zee News Editor, said "Our channel only showed what was happening there, whatever we have shown is 100 per cent authentic.
