No ban on `Madhu Koda Loot Raj`
Ranchi: Jharkhand High Court today rejected
former Chief Minister Madhu Koda`s petition seeking a ban on a
newly-launched book titled `Madhu Koda Loot Raj`.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Prakash Tatia
and Justice P P Bhatt dismissed the petition on the grounds of
freedom of speech.
Koda had on January 12 moved the court praying for a ban
on the book authored by BJP leader Saryu Roy, who was a member
of the state assembly during Koda`s tenure from 2006 and 2008.
The book on purported loot of mineral resources in the
state was released by Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy
here on January 15.
Koda is currently under judicial custody after his
arrest on November.
