Old habits die hard for a ‘new’ newspaper?

20 May 2008

Sakaal Times, the English newspaper owned by Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar‘s nephew Abhijit Pawar, designed by Mario Garcia with former Times of India editor Dileep Padgaonkar playing a key editorial role, has run into trouble less than a fortnight after its launch in Poona.

The blog Pen Pricks has detected plagiarisation of content in an editorial published yesterday, 19 May 2008 on healthcare. The piece has allegedly lifted a huge chunk (highlighted above) from an article by Leena V. Gangolli, Ravi Duggal and Abhya Shukla published at cehat.org.
