Reputational Attack on Mukesh Ambani and RIL over YSR’s Death

The news channel TV5 made direct allegations upon RIL and its Chairman, Mukesh Ambani being involved in the helicopter crash that took place on September 2. The report stated that RIL was involved in the helicopter crash that resulted in the death of YS Rajasekharan Reddy. The report was based on the claims of a less known website named “The exile”.

Following the report, violence gripped Andhra Pradesh wherein RIL properties and personnel were attacked. The Andhra police have filed a sou moto case against the Telugu news channel for inciting violence.

RIL issued a statement through its spokesperson that read, “We are shocked and outraged at the false, malicious, motivated and libelous news on TV5 channel concerning the fatal mishap of Shri Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy's helicopter. We condemn, rebut and reject the allegation with the contempt it deserves. It is the dirty handiwork of our business rivals in cohoots with TV5.” The spokesperson further added, “We will file a criminal complaint against the channel. We also demand that the central and state governments initiate an immediate investigation into these despicable acts and bring the culprits to justice.”
