An Additional Session Judge of Delhi, Shri Sunil Chaudhary, reprimanded the counsel for filing Bail Application by using “Cam Scanner” App to scan the same.
The court observed that the app had been banned by the Government of India, therefore the Judge cautioned against its use in “legal work in the future”.
The order reads as under-
“The application as filed is scanned with the application CamScanner which has been banned by the Govt of India. The Counsel is advised to avoid the use of a banned application in legal work in future.”
The Court, however, directed the Investigating Officer to respond to the submissions made in the scanned bail application by the next date of hearing.
It is known that Cam Scanner alongwith other 58 apps of Chinese origin have been banned by Government of India “in view of information available they are engaged in activities which is prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.”
