Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Nation -

: Tamil Nadu gover­nor Ban­war­i­lal Puro­hit on Fri­day de­fended the po­lice com­plaint against the ed­i­tor of a Tamil weekly, say­ing he was hurt by the “con­tin­uos slan­der” pub­lished in the mag­a­zine against him and as­serted that he would never be cowed down. Days af­ter the ar­rest and sub­se­quent re­lease of R Gopal, the ed­i­tor of the ver­nac­u­lar weekly ‘Nakkheeran,’ in con­nec­tion with ar­ti­cles linked to an as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of a col­lege that al­legedly dis­par­aged the gover­nor, the Raj Bha­van strongly re­futed the charges. “Hav­ing been hurt by the con­tin­u­ous base­less slan­der, a com­plaint has been given un­der the law,” a state­ment by Raj Bha­van said.
