Allowing Illegal Interception of Telephonic Conversation as Evidence is Violation of Citizen’s Fundamental Right, observed by Delhi H.C.

Delhi H.C. set aside 10-year-old order of special CBI judge, wherein CBI filed tape-recordings of intercepted calls of an accused, bribing the chairman of Medical council of India for allowing admission into 4th batch of MBBS, in a medical college. The Court further observed that, allowing illegal interception of telephonic conversation as a piece of evidence violates the citizen’s right to privacy and is against the settled principle of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of K.S. Puttaswamy.
