New Delhi (ILNS): The Delhi High Court has directed its registry to not share the video conference hearing link with any person other than those involved in the matter.
A single judge bench comprising Justice Suresh Kumar Kait noted that the link shall only be provided to advocates concerned, IO concerned, parties in person in case the petition is filed for quashing and to the persons specifically directed by this court to join the proceedings.
The bench has also clarified that no advocate shall share the link with anyone else except the Senior advocates or the advocates appearing on their behalf.
Clarifying the reasoning behind the directions, the bench stated that
“A very unpleasant situation came before this court during the hearing of present case. Certain unidentified persons joined the proceedings through video conferencing and could be heard talking continuously, thereby creating a hindrance in hearing the submission of counsels and proper justice dispensation.”
