NDTV founder Prannoy Roy’s house was raided by the CBI for allegedly causing losses to a private bank.

Times Of India reports that the agency has registered a case against Roy, his wife Radhika and RRPR Holdings for allegedly causing losses of Rs. 48 crore to ICICI Bank. CBI sources told the publication that the agency was carrying out searches at four places in Delhi and Dehradun.

NDTV released a statement regarding this earlier today. It said, “This morning, the CBI stepped up the concerted harassment of NDTV and its promoters based on the same old endless false accusations. NDTV and its promoters will fight tirelessly against this witch-hunt by multiple agencies. We will not succumb to these attempts to blatantly undermine democracy and free speech in India. We have one message to those who are trying to destroy the institutions of India and everything it stands for: we will fight for our country and overcome these forces.”
