SC denies bail to a minor who broadcast an obscene video of a minor girl


New Delhi – A 14-year-old girl’s obscene video was made and broadcast by her classmate in Uttarakhand. The girl committed suicide due to fear of being defamed. The incident happened in October 2023. A petition was filed in the Supreme Court to demand bail for the boy. The Court however, denied bail.

The boy was denied bail by the District Court and the High Court. While denying bail, the High Court said the boy was unruly and had joined the wrong company. He needs strict discipline. If he is released, more such incidents may happen. Therefore, it is not correct to grant him bail. The boy’s mother approached the Supreme Court thereafter. On this petition, Justice Bela M. Trivedi and Justice Pankaj Mittal refused to grant bail to the boy, upholding the High Court’s decision.
