Harish Khare, editor-in-chief of The Tribune, a Chandigarh-based newspaper, resigned from his post barely two months after it published a shocking report on security flaws in the Aadhaar database.

The Delhi bureau head of the newspaper, KV Prasad, will take over as the interim editor. However, there are also strong rumours that Sanjaya Baru, former editor-in-chief of Business Standard and author of The Accidental Prime Minister, might take over as the editorial head of The Tribune.

Khare, who was the media advisor to former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh from 2009 till 2012 has previously been associated with several English dailies including The Hindu, Hindustan Times and The Times of India, holding various editorial positions.

He joined The Tribune in June 2015 and even offered to quit last year in protest against the three-column apology that The Tribune made for publishing reports on Bikram Singh Majithia, a former minister, and his involvement in drug trade. According to an online news portal, the apology was reportedly forced upon him. For more updates, be socially connected with us on
