Social Activists invite Court Contempt Charges

Mint reports: A group of 26 social activists, including Magsaysay awardee Arvind Kejriwal, have filed an application before the Supreme Court requesting that they be included as "parties" in the appeal filed by Mid Day saying that they too have reitirated whatever has been written by Mid Day
The Delhi High Court has convicted the Editor and three others of Mid Day for contempt of court after they published articles against former Chief Justice of India Shri Y K Sabharwal
I am concerned that the High Court verdict is an attack on the freedom of speech against any misconduct of the judiciary.
Update: I saw the print version in Mint. The link has been given by Melody from The Hindu
