Congress leader Milind Deora, Nirupam among four found guilty of paid news
In all, 84 complaints of paid news were received by a committee specially set up to keep a watch on paid news.

Complaints against Congress candidates — Union minister of state for shipping and IT Milind Deora (Mumbai South), Sanjay Nirupam (Mumbai North), Vishwajit Kadam (Pune) — and BJP candidate from Pune Deepak Shirole have been found true, sources in the State Election Office said.

The candidates were found guilty by the district committee set up by the poll body to keep a watch on paid news and this decision (of finding four candidates guilty) has been upheld by the state committee of the election office, sources said.

If the charge is established, the news items identified as paid news will be looked as advertisements and will be included in the election expenditure of the candidates, officials said.
