Man moves SC after stopped from clicking RBI pics, fined Rs 50K

Reported by: PTI New Delhi 07 Jul 2017, 22:33:14 IST

Bizarre but true! A man moved the Supreme Court against the Reserve Bank of India after its guards stopped him from clicking pictures of the federal bank building here. 

The apex court took strong note of Arul Mozhi Selvan's bid to approach it and slapped a fine of Rs 50,000 on him for abusing the process of law and wasting judicial time. 

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud asked him to deposit the cost with the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA). The SCBA would use the money in upgrading its library, it said. 

Selvan was stopped from clicking pictures of the RBI building in central Delhi by the security guards. He filed the petition against RBI alleging violation of his fundamental rights.
