Even as Zee News has been running programmes  questioning  the chargesheet filed in the Kathua rape case, Deepika Singh, lawyer for the Kathua victim’s family, has sent a legal notice To Zee Hindi News for a programme run by Zee Hindi News on April 17 in which Sudhir Chaudhury had alleged that Deepika Singh Rajawat had stayed at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, with the innuendo that she had supported anti-national elements.
