Speaking more about the contents of the case, the senior advocate said, “The case was filed against two or three video publications in the social media news platform owned by Talapatra. So far we have analyzed the videos, the kind of language used there is not at all news. The video also contained derogatory and insulting comments against the indigenous communities of Tripura.
