This week on NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Manisha Pande are joined by Subir Bhaumik, former correspondent with BBC and Reuters, and Vivek Kaul, journalist and economics commentator.


Starting with the violence in Tripura, Subir offers some background and explains the roles of social media and the state police. “Tripura’s clashes have never been communal,” he says. “It’s the regional differences that initiate such issues. But this time, it’s clearly Hindu-Muslim...Fake news and misinformation is the core reason of any such riot in Tripura.”
