IT Dept denies interference in editorial decisions of News Daily
Certain allegations have appeared in some sections of media that IT Dept officials were suggesting changes in stories & taking editorial decisions during their search on offices of a certain publication.These allegations are absolutely false & are categorically denied by IT Dept.
In keeping with the Department’s protocol, the Investigation team only looked into the financial transactions of the group related to tax evasion.
Shri Om Gaur is based in Lucknow as per his interview to media. It is emphasised that Lucknow office of the publication was not searched by the Income Tax team. Sh Om Gaur was not even questioned. The allegations being made have no basis & in fact seem to be highly motivated.
