Missed It: Cartoonist Among Several Guilty of Contempt In New Delhi

The cartoonist Irfan was among four journalists found guilty early yesterday of being in contempt of court for the publication of articles against a former Chief Justice of India. Apparently, the articles stem from a news report alleging that the judge's sons had ties with some developers who benefited from that relationship. Irfan was the last journalist charged, for a caricature of the judge. Sentencing will be held on September 21.
