SC notice to Gujarat over Jaswant's book ban


A bench of Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice Cyriac Joseph directed the Gujarat government to file its reply by September 8. Fali S Nariman and Soli Sorabjee, appearing for Singh and publisher Rupa & Co, submitted that the ban was a violation of the fundamental rights.

The apex court has fixed September 8 as the next date of hearing. It, however, refused to accept copies of the former external affairs miniter’s book as a complimentary gift.
“If we read the book now, it will prejudice us,’’ said Justice Kabir.
