Sahara Group, which obtained a stay from the Calcutta high court in December on the publication of Mint journalist Tamal Bandyopadhyay’s book Sahara: The Untold Story and filed a Rs 200-crore defamation suit against the author and his publisher Jaico Publishing House, has withdrawn the case following an amicable settlement.

The book will now be released in May.

The book will incorporate a disclaimer issued by Sahara which says, “The book at best can be treated as a perspective of the author with all its defamatory content... By getting the opportunity to put forward our objections in the form of a disclaimer...in the best tradition of Sahara and our respect for a journalist’s freedom, we are...withdrawing the case we had filed against the publication of the book.”
