Aseem Trivedi Faces Charge Sheet In Five-Year-Old Case

One of the more remarkable strategies of modern censorship regarding speech is keeping pressure on not just newer works cartoonists and artists targeted by police may do but to keep charges related to older works alive and well and worth a return. That seems to be the case here, where a group here has initiated against work done by cartoonist Aseem Trivedi in 2012. I can kind of see the logic, as you don't have pushback against a notion that the material in question is worth looking into, but my goodness that has to be an exhausting nightmare for the artists involved -- which one might assume is the point.
