Delhi High Court Accepts Vivek Agnihotri’s Apologies Against His Tweets on Justice S Murlidhar.

Director Vivek Agnihotri made an appearance before the Delhi High Court on Monday in a criminal contempt matter initiated by the court about a tweet he had posted in 2018 regarding Justice S Murlidhar's decision to quash the transit remand of Gautam Navlakha. 


The court had previously ordered Agnihotri to appear in person on the last hearing date. On December 6, Agnihotri submitted an unconditional apology for his tweets from 2018.

During Vivek Agnihotri's appearance before the bench comprising Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Vikas Mahajan, the court acknowledged that Agnihotri had offered an unconditional apology and expressed remorse for his actions.

He expressed his regrets and offered an unconditional apology for his alleged offensive statement on Twitter. As a result, he was discharged by the court, which also warned him to exercise greater caution in the future.

The bench had directed Agnihotri to be present at the upcoming hearing. The court had initiated this contempt case on its own accord against Agnihotri and Reserve Bank of India Governor S Gurumurthy.

Agnihotri's counsel informed the court that he was unable to appear in person due to a fever. In response, the bench instructed Agnihotri to appear physically on the next scheduled date. Agnihotri's counsel had also submitted an affidavit stating that Agnihotri had deleted the tweets put up in question.

On the contrary, the amicus curiae argued against the submission, stating that the tweets had been deleted by the social media platform Twitter and not by Agnihotri himself.

The bench had stated, "We are requesting Agnihotri to appear in person as he is the contemnor. Does he face any difficulty in expressing remorse in person? Remorse cannot always be conveyed solely through an affidavit."
