CHANDIGARH: In a sudden turn of events the Editor-in Chief of The Tribune Group of publications Harish Khare today reportedly submits huis resignation incidently on the day when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal gave a clean chit to former Punjab Minister Bikram Majithia facing drug charges.

The Tribune had also published an apology from Majithia last year for the series of stories on drugs in which Majithia was accused of patronising the drug trade. Khare though at that time told his staff that he was forced to publish the aplogy and reporters are free do any story on facts.

Six months doen the line, Arvind Kejriwal has also submitted his apology in the court saying that he withdraws all his previous statements naming Mjithia as drug kingpin.

This may be coincidence that Khare has submitted the resignation same day Kejriwal has submitted his apology. Both of them faced criticism for their act. Khare's exit is signal that the members of The Tribune Trust were not happy with his style of functioning and confronting the present Congress government headed by Capt Amarinder Singh.

Meanwhile, KV Prasad chief of Bureau of Delhi has taken over the charge of Editor-in Chief of The Tribune.
