SC reserves judgement on Facebook India VP’s petition challenging summons

Feb 25, 2021 08:15 IST | By EDITORJI NEWS DESK

The Supreme Court on Wednesday reserved its judgement on Facebook India Vice President Ajit Mohan’s petition, challenging the summons issued by the 'Peace and Harmony committee' of the Delhi assembly for failing to appear before it as a witness in connection with the Delhi riots case. Facebook India Vice President and MD Ajit Mohan Wednesday told the Supreme Court that the "right to silence" is a virtue in present "noisy times" and the legislature had no authority to examine him in a law and order case. Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Facebook official, argued that setting up of the panel was not the core function of the Delhi assembly. Salve also said these kinds of "expansion of power through the backdoor" should not be allowed.
