CPI(M)'s mouthpiece in Tripura resumes publication
Agartala, Oct 11 (PTI) Opposition CPI(M)'s mouthpiece in
Tripura, 'Daily Desher Katha', resumed its publication from
Thursday after a gap of 10 days following an order passed by
the Tripura High Court on Wednesday.
The publication of the newspaper had stopped since
October 1 following an order of the District Magistrate of
West Tripura district Sandip N Mahatme.
A preliminary investigation conducted by the District
Magistrate into a complaint allegedly for violating the Press
and Registration of Books Act, had reportedly found
"substance" in the complaint and a hearing process was
initiated and the publication was stopped from October 1 last.
The newspaper filed a writ petition in the Tripura High
Court and the court in its order on Wednesday stayed the
deregistration of 'Daily Desher Katha' and paved the way for
the Bengali daily to resume publication.
The newspaper published its 49th issue of the 40th year of
its publication Thursday with a declaration which names Samir
Paul as editor and says that the newspaper is printed at
Tripura Printers & Publishers Private Limited and published by
the Daily Desher Katha Trust.
Publication of the newspaper was resumed today. The High
Court issued stay order on an administrative order which
stopped publication. There is no problem in publication now.
We are satisfied at the Courts order, editor of Daily Desher
Katha Samir Paul told reporters. PTI JOY
