In 2012, former parliamentarian Naveen Jindal had accused that the editors of Zee News and Zee Business, tried to extort Rs 100 crore worth of advertisements from his company in return for dropping stories linking to Jindal firms andCoal-gate. 

The truce took place after Naveen Jindal met Subhash Chandra, Chairman of Zee Group today morning. Both Jindal and Chandra later confirmed this development by tweeting about it.
