The Southasia Trust is suspending publication of Himal Southasian, the pioneering magazine promoting cross-border journalism  in the region. The decision was taken by the Trust’s Executive Board on 22 August, “due to non-cooperation by regulatory state agencies in Nepal that has made it impossible to continue operations after 29 years of publication”, the statement said. It adds that Himal will resume publication when circumstances in Nepal or elsewhere make it possible.

The judges felt that the media should also not publish the names of the justices presiding over a case. The ruling was given after the bench found that a lawyer had filed a fraudulent case of sexual violence involving Dalit children for the sake of his own publicity. Needless to say, the media are unlikely to heed this particular ruling by the Madras High Court.
