Sunita Kejriwal told to take down her husband's court address video

The Delhi High Court on Saturday issued notice to Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube, to delete posts and/or reposts, of a video of the AAP leader addressing the court on March 28.

A Division Bench of Justices Neena Bansal Krishna and Amit Sharma further directed a host of other social media handles to take down the video as well.

The court passed the order while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by advocate Vaibhav Singh.

The video pertains to March 28, when Kejriwal had addressed Special Judge (PC Act) Kaveri Baweja when he was produced before the court for the second time following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate.

Advocate Vaibhav Singh argued that after Kejriwal addressed the Rouse Avenue Court on the said date, several social media handles associated with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and other Opposition parties made video/audio recordings of the court proceedings and posted them on social media platforms. Sunita Kejriwal also reposted an audio recording uploaded by an X user.

Singh argued that recording of court proceedings is prohibited under the "High Court of Delhi Rules for Video Conferencing for Courts 2021" and making these videos viral was an effort to malign the image of the judiciary and the judges.
