The Meghalaya High Court on Friday held Shillong Times’ Editor, Patricia Mukhim, and publisher, Shobha Chaudhuri, guilty of contempt of court.

This comes in connection with two stories that the Shillong-based daily published in December about a court order seeking better facilities for retired judges and their families.

As per reports, the court imposed a fine of Rs 2 lakh each on Mukhim and Chaudhuri and failing to pay the amount within a week, the court said that the duo would be imprisoned for six months and the paper would be “banned”.
