Daily gets remedy against ban

Dang, February 14:

The Tulsipur appellate court yesterday issued orders to the dang District Administration Office to let a local newspaper continue its publication.

The then CDO, Shiva Prasad Nepal, had banned the publication of the Nayan Yugbodh daily following the February 1 royal takeover last year.

The editor of the daily, Narayan Prasad Sharma, had moved the court seeking its mandamus and prohibitory order to the administration not to act against the daily and let it continue its publication. A joint bench of Chief Judge of the court Avadesh Kumar Yadav and judge Uddhav Prasad Baskota gave the verdict.
