Feb 21, 2018-A contempt of court case has been registered at Supreme Court (SC) against Kantipur Daily, claiming that news reports related to date of birth and educational certificates of Chief Justice Gopal Prasad Parajuli have defamed the court.

Chairman and Managing Director of Kantipur Publications Kailash Sirohiya, Director Swastika Sirohiya, Kantipur Daily Editor-in-Chief Sudheer Sharma and journalist Krishna Gyawali have been made defendants in the case.
