In a recent judgment, the Delhi High Court has dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) that sought ‘extraordinary interim bail’ for Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi. The court also imposed a fine of ₹75,000 on the petitioners for the frivolous nature of the plea.

Details of the Court’s Decision

The PIL was presented as a demand for special consideration for Kejriwal’s release under conditions described as ‘extraordinary’. However, the Delhi High Court found no merit in the petition, ruling it as unjustifiable and unnecessary, hence dismissing it outright.

The imposition of the ₹75,000 fine underscores the court’s stance on deterring litigants from using the judicial system for baseless claims, especially those involving high-profile figures.

Implications of the Ruling

This decision by the Delhi High Court sends a clear message about the sanctity of legal processes and the consequences of misusing them through unwarranted public interest litigations.

It highlights the judiciary’s commitment to maintaining order and discipline in its proceedings, ensuring that the courts are not overwhelmed by unfounded petitions.
