Hey DNA, where did these stories about Ambani wedding go?

This is not the first time that stories have vanished from this news website.

Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s pre-wedding festivities expected to take place in Udaipur on December 8 and 9 has ensured that the City of Lakes becomes a regular mention in daily news headlines. 

Some media outlets have reported that 30-50 chartered aircraft are expected to fly guests to and from Udaipur’s Maharana Pratap Airport—a spot that otherwise sees a movement of only 19 commercial flights on a regular day.

However, one such news outlet—DNA—seems to have pulled down two of its reports pertaining to the Ambani wedding. The first one is about a man who “won the internet” when he shouted “Jio nahi chal raha” at Mukesh Ambani at the Deepika-Ranveer wedding, while the other was titled “Ambani revelries to crowd skies in Udaipur.”

However, both pages now state that “you are not authorised to access this page.”

The video of a man shouting “Jio chal nahi raha” had gone viral on the internet—something that DNA obviously took cognisance of—since they deemed it important enough to publish. So why first publish it and then take it down?

On the other hand, articles about how Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s wedding is “nothing short but magnificent” as well as “exclusive details” from their pre-wedding ceremonies appear to be perfectly intact on their website.

When Newslaundry reached out to senior editors at both, DNA and Zee Digital, they refused to officially comment on the matter. However, sources in DNA that Newslaundry spoke with have claimed that they were directed to remove/pull down the articles by the top management.

This is not the first time articles have gone “missing” from the DNA website. Newslaundry had earlier reported how the news outlet had published an article busting 9 myths about Modi—and then removed it from its website 24 hours later. We still don’t know why this was done.
