News television network NDTV's founders Prannoy Roy and his wife Radhika, who are facing a corruption case, were detained at the city airport Friday evening and prevented from flying abroad. In a statement, the leading media company said both were stopped from traveling abroad on the basis of "a fake and wholly unsubstantiated corruption case initiated by CBI" two years ago. Both of them were traveling to an undisclosed destination and were scheduled to return on August 16, the company said.
