Delhi HC Orders Removal of Court Proceeding Video Shared by Sunita Kejriwal

In a notable decision on June 15, the Delhi High Court directed Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to remove a video recording of court proceedings from social media platforms. This video, showcasing Arvind Kejriwal addressing a trial court, was alleged to have violated the High Court of Delhi Rules for Video Conferencing for Courts, 2021.

A Bench comprising Justices Neena Bansal Krishna and Amit Sharma also issued notices to six individuals, including Sunita Kejriwal, and to prominent social media platforms like X, Meta, and YouTube. The court ordered these platforms to take down similar content if notified of any reposts.

This interim ex-parte order was passed while considering a petition filed by lawyer Vaibhav Singh. According to Singh’s petition, the video in question was captured when Arvind Kejriwal was presented before a trial court on March 28 following his arrest linked to the Delhi excise policy case. The video was subsequently shared across social media platforms by Sunita Kejriwal among others, sparking this legal challenge.
