James Laine case in Supreme Court: An update
The matter relating to lifting of Maharashtra Government's ban on James Laine's book, Shivaji came up for hearing before Justices Arijit Pasayat and Mukundakam Sharma today, and has been adjourned for four weeks. In its notice to Laine, the Court sought to know whether he is agreeable to deletion of paragraphs found objectionable in the interest of justice. According to our sources, James Laine has refused to accept the Court's suggestion to delete those paragraphs. More on this next week.
