The Delhi High Court on Saturday issued a notice to Arvind Kejriwal's wife Sunita Kejriwal, asking her to take down the video recording of court proceedings when the Delhi Chief Minister addressed the court in person following his arrest in the liquor policy case.

A Division Bench of Justices Neena Bansal Krishna and Amit Sharma further directed social media platforms X, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to take down similar content when it comes to their notice.

The court 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.

He said that posting such videos was part of the conspiracy hatched by Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP.
