New Delhi: In a power rarely exercised by it, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal has issued a bailable warrant of arrest against Sahara India TV Network Directors Govind Tiwari and Devendra Kumar Srivastava in a case of non-payment of dues to multi-system operator Delhi Distribution Company.  

Listing the matter for 22 December, Chairman Aftab Alam and members Kuldip Singh and B B Srivastava said: ?From the earlier orders, it appears that the Directors of the company are willfully flouting the directions of this Tribunal. The Tribunal is, therefore, left with no option but to secure their presence through coercive measures.? 

It was also noted that neither the details of moveable and immoveable properties of the company were filed nor any payment being made towards the discharge of the decree. 

Sahara India counsel Pankaj Agarwal who was present said he had been instructed that he would be handed over the cheque to be handed over to the MSO but was later told no cheque was being sent.

The TDSAT office was directed to issue bailable warrants of arrest on the addresses being furnished by MSO Counsel Vibhav Srivastava to ensure their personal appearance on the next date fixed in the matter.
