Bizarre but true!

A man moved the against the Reserve after its guards stopped him from clicking pictures of the 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 asked him to deposit the cost with the Bar Association (SCBA).

The SCBA would use the money in upgrading its library, it said.

Selvan was stopped from clicking pictures of the building in central Delhi by the security guards.

He filed the petition against alleging violation of his fundamental rights.
