Said Siti Cable executive director and CEO V D Wadhwa in the release:  “There are no such developments between Siti Cable and Den Networks and we would not like to comment on the speculative news  being carried out in the media in this regard”.

The National and the Bombay Stock exchanges had also sought clarifications from Den Networks in the matter. The latter has through  a similar notice  signed by company secretary Jatin Mahajan to the exchange stated that as a policy  it does not comment on any market speculation.
