Kaler Kantha editor, publisher sued

An Awami League (AL) lawmaker yesterday filed a civil suit against the editor, publisher and a reporter of the daily Kaler Kantha claiming Tk 200 crore as compensation on charge of running a news item against him in their daily.
Golam Mawla Rony, MP from Patuakhali-3 constituency, filed the suit against editor Abed Khan, publisher Mostafa Kamal Mohiuddin and reporter Shafiqul Islam Jewel with the Fourth Joint District Judge's Court of Dhaka.
Judge Al Shams Joglul Hossain fixed August 29 for the next hearing on the suit.
Rony, in his complaint, said the daily had run a news item titled 'Shobar Upore MP Rony' on May 23 that defamed his name and reputation in the society as well as in the political arena.
The complainant said the news item was false, fabricated and concocted and it was done only to undermine his image at home and abroad.
