The Delhi High Court on Wednesday ordered the concerned authorities to take all permissible steps to ensure that the further sharing, distribution, forwarding, or posting of an offending video of a district judge is restrained forthwith.
A video allegedly showing the judicial officer in a compromising position with staff in his chamber had gone viral on social media platforms.
“The defendants shall take all permissible steps to ensure that the further sharing, distribution, forwarding, or posting of the offending video is restrained forthwith. Defendant No.5 (Union) will also ensure that all further steps as are warranted in terms of the communication of the Registrar General dated 29 November 2022 are taken and a compliance report submitted in these proceedings,” Justice Yashwant Varma observed.
The single-judge bench made the observation, keeping in mind the sexually explicit nature of the video’s contents and the imminent, grave, and irreparable harm that is likely to be caused to the plaintiff’s privacy rights.
