Sunita Kejriwal Faces FIR Threat Over Court Hearing Posts on Social Media

Sunita Kejriwal, wife of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, may soon face a First Information Report (FIR) due to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in the Delhi High Court on Wednesday. This PIL demands legal action against her for sharing video clips of the Delhi chief minister’s court proceedings on social media platforms, as reported by Bar and Bench.

Advocate Vaibhav Singh, who filed the PIL, identified several social media accounts that disseminated audio and video recordings of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s appearance at the Rouse Avenue Court. Kejriwal was there in relation to the Delhi excise policy case. Singh’s plea calls for a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the matter.

In his submission, Singh argues that after Kejriwal’s court address on March 28, numerous social media accounts associated with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and other opposition parties began posting the court proceedings online. Singh claims that immediately following the hearing, these accounts engaged in “posting, reposting, forwarding, sharing, resharing” the recordings.

Although Sunita Kejriwal did not directly post any video or audio content, Singh alleges that she reposted an audio recording uploaded by a Twitter account named Akshay. On the day in question, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had brought Arvind Kejriwal before the court in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. During his court appearance, Kejriwal accused the ED of running an extortion racket for the BJP.

“The post related to this audio/video recording was circulated on X (formerly Twitter) with the hashtag #MoneyTrailExposedByKejriwal,” Singh noted. He suggested that the widespread distribution of these recordings hinted at a deeper conspiracy by political entities aiming to discredit the judiciary and deceive the public into believing that the judiciary was under governmental influence.

Singh further argued that recording court proceedings contravenes the “High Court of Delhi Rules for Video Conferencing for Courts 2021.” He asserts that the virality of these recordings was a deliberate attempt to tarnish the judiciary’s reputation and mislead the public, implying that the judicial system operates under pressure from the government.

The petitioner alleged that sharing such videos was part of a broader conspiracy orchestrated by Arvind Kejriwal and his party members. “The circumstances indicate a preplanned conspiracy to record the court proceedings, orchestrated by Arvind Kejriwal and his associates. Kejriwal’s unprecedented personal appearance in court on March 28, 2024, appears to be a strategy to garner public sympathy,” Singh submitted.

Given these allegations, Advocate Singh is seeking legal action against Sunita Kejriwal, emphasizing the need for accountability and adherence to legal protocols in the handling and dissemination of court proceedings. This case underscores the tension between political maneuvering and judicial integrity, with significant implications for the involved parties and the public’s perception of the judicial system’s impartiality.
