Acting upon a writ petition filed by Advocate Anjani Kumar Pokharel, a single bench of Justice Tarka Raj Bhatta demanded the apex court administration to come up with the cutting of the op-ed pieces written by journalists Bijaya Kumar Pandey and Ghanshyam Khadka in Kantipur daily.
The apex court also asked the administration to furnish all the other court related articles published in the newspaper after Monday.
In the writ, Advocate Pokharel has named journalist Pandey, Chairman and Managing Director of Kantipur Publications Kailash Sirohiya and Kantipur Daily Editor-in-Chief Sudheer Sharma as the defendants.
The writ claims that Kumar’s recent article ‘Pad Ra Pahichan Ko Mahaan Antar’, a weekly dose of his regular column ‘Aadhi/ Ityadhi’ disrespected the court.
Kumar’s article dwelt on the dress code enforced by the Supreme Court and appointment of controversial Lokman Singh Karki as the Chief of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA).
