Author and publishers of Valmiki Yaaru approach HC challenging ban imposed by State Govt.

Dharward : The author and publisher of Valmiki Yaaru? (Who is Valmiki?) book K S Narayanacharya and Subramanya have approached the high court challenging the ban imposed on their book by the state government.

The state government had registered a complaint against the duo in Upprapet police in Bengaluru on the grounds that the book had hurted the religious sentiments of a community.

Narayanacharya and Subramanya then approched the High Court seeking to set aside Section 96 of CrPC which sought to set aside the forfeiture of a publication.

A special bench comprising of Justices Venugopala Gowda, A S Bopanna and Pradeep Waingakar has now ordered the government to file its objections in two weeks.
