DB Corporation, the publisher of Dainik Bhaskar, has received a huge relief from the Delhi High Court. The Court has dismissed the orders restricting the management from launching the newspaper in Ranchi. Sanjay Agarwal, Co-owner, DB Corp, had earlier had managed to acquire stay orders from the Court on the launch of Dainik Bhaskar in Ranchi.
It may be recalled that Sanjay Agarwal was given stay on August 29, 2010, by the single bench of Judge Muralidharan of Delhi High Court. Later, this matter was forwarded to the Chief Justice of Delhi High Court, but he refused to hear this case himself. Then the matter was sent to the two-member bench of Court No. 2. This bench had kept its decision safe after hearing this case a few days earlier. In the latest judgment, the Court acted in favour of the DB Corp management and allowed it to publish the newspaper from Ranchi.
With this, the edition of Dainik Bhaskar, which is being circulated in Ranchi with a Jamshedpur dateline, will have a dedicated dateline of Ranchi. DB Corp had launched the Ranchi edition of Dainik Bhaskar on August 22, 2010 and the whole matter hit the headlines due to the tussle among co-owners.
