TPH #026 Aksaru Dweep Par Durghatna -Vikram (Sun Comics V01N11)
This is another Indian character from an old comic publication. I recently found this comic while looking for IJCs on an old book shop. Though I had never heard of this comic before, but the names of the creators grabbed my attention. The writer is Jagjit Uppal (Bahadur fame) and drawing artist is Pradeep Saathe (Dara fame). This is a 1983 publication. There is another story of Inspector Garud inside this comic. This is a character I used to read as strip in "Saptahik Hindustan" years ago, I have faint memories of that. Initially it was called Inspector Eagle, later they changed the name. First time I am reading in comic book version. The stories are fairly ok. Artwork is very nice for an indian comic especially of the first story.
