Just to cite the incident...very fresh in Cobrapost. This was a forgery in the name of sting operation which got caught internally and the story was dropped...the reporter was sacked. Let's imagine of the situation if the forgery had not been caught...then we would have seen a famous Chambal dacoit interviewed live by the reporter in the BENAKAB only. Then, we would have relied upon a forged and planted story of which the group's Editor-in-Chief also was not responsible and aware of...as he has great confidence upon his reporters.
The reporter went to Chambal and interviewed a dacoit. Some famous one...the name is not known as yet...reporter managed to make a local man look as that dacoit by covering him with a blanket and doing all the make-ups required to look like a seasoned bandit. Coming back to his office in Noida, when he showed the tape to the senior, he got caught...whatever the reason...I don't know. Every criminal leaves some mark of his crime...the same was the case with him.
