You may recall some months ago that Indian publishing houses Sahitya Tirtha and Nandita Publishers were in a dispute with WB and J.K. Rowling over Harry Potter Kolkataye – a book which author Uttam Ghosh sets the boy wizard in Kolkata and introduces a native boy named Jhontu.
The Times of India has an update on the story.

The Leaky Cauldron is not associated with J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros., or any of the individuals or companies associated with producing and publishing Harry Potter books and films.
