'Prosecution-defence nexus in BMW case'
A news channel has telecast a 'sting' to show collusion between prosecution and defence in the BMW hit-and-run case.

New Delhi: A private news channel on Wednesday telecast a 'sting' operation purporting to show a collusion between the prosecution and the defence in the high-profile BMW hit-and-run case in which Sanjeev Nanda, grandson of a former Navy chief, is accused of running over and killing six persons while driving a BMW car nearly eight years back.

The channel showed with the help of a hidden camera RK Anand, one of the leading criminal lawyers in the country and the counsel for Nanda in the case, talking to prosecution witness Sunil Kulkarni about the case.

Kulkarni discusses money transaction with Anand, who told the channel that the witness was a blackmailer and that he had laughed at his demand for money when he suddenly approached him at Delhi Airport. Anand said everything is fabricated.

The channel claimed that Kulkarni had met the defence lawyer a second time, but Anand denied that.

According to the expose, public prosecutor IU Khan asked Kulkarni if he had met "bade sahib". Kulkarni told the channel that the reference was to Anand.

The channel also said that they had been approached by Kulkarni after watching the expose on the BMW case. He claimed he was under great pressure from the defence and the prosecution to change his original statement and he offered to prove this on hidden camera.

But just before the testimony began, he withdrew his initial consent, the television channel said in a release. Anand said he had told the Delhi High Court that Kulkarni should not be examined because he is a blackmailer and "he has been blackmailing us for so many years."
