Recording by phone in police station not a crime: Court

On receiving such information, the police arrived and the accused named Jaikishan Ratho and Kumar Suresh Jain were brought to the police station, where the latter was pardoned.

Later, Devesh was allowed to go but when he came back to get the mobile phone, five videos of the police station were found in his mobile phone and they were also made viral. Hence, a case was registered against the accused under the IT Act.

The evidence presented by the prosecution has not proved the fact that doing videography in the police station or recording video with a mobile phone is a crime. Such a recording. It is believed that video clipping by mobile recording does not become a crime when it is not a crime to do so.
