Bengaluru: The top court in the country has stayed multiple FIRs filed by the Mamata Banerjee government against OpIndia.
It is to be noted that, as per Nupur J Sharma, who is the editor of the web portal has come out stating that her husband, OpIndia Hindi editor Ajeet Bharti and OpIndia CEO Rahul Roushan were also made a party in the FIRs.
She added that the cops interrogated them for hours together with malice as the driving force.
The Supreme Court has stayed multiple FIRs filed against Me, my husband and other editors of OpIndia. The FIRs were filed maliciously by the West Bengal State Govt. Me and my husband were interrogated by the police in this regard too.— Nupur J Sharma (@UnSubtleDesi) June 26, 2020
It’s got nothing to do with the Bihar case+ https://t.co/sGcGOQQkYp
It is to be noted that Nupur has made it clear that her husband has nothing to do with the web portal but a case was filed against him under sections like 153A just because she used a phone number registered under his name.
"I have always had utmost faith in the process of law and that justice prevails for those who side with Dharma. SC has upheld my faith", Nupur wrote in a tweet.
A note on how vindictive parties can get:
OpIndia is only one portal in the series of vindictiveness exhibited by Congress and likeminded parties.
Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami was specifically chosen by the Congress party to unleash its brutality as it filed more than a 100 FIRs against him across the country, especially in Congress ruled states.

The Congress party took umbrage as he perennially telecast programmes questioning AICC chief Sonia Gandhi’s silence over the killings of two Hindu monks and their driver.
He also took her original name on the show which raised the hackles of the Congress party.
It is ironic that a country like India, which prides itself in freedom of speech and expression, is witness to such barbarities.
She also thanked noted lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani who made a pro bono appearance in the Supreme Court to argue OpIndia's case. Nupur has assured that she will reveal full details of the FIR in the future.
