NEW DELHI: The Attorney General KK Venugopal today granted consent for initiating criminal contempt against stand up comedian Kunal Kamra for his tweets against the Supreme Court verdict on journalist Arnab Goswami.
The move comes after a Mumbai-based advocate on Wednesday sought the permission to initiate contempt proceedings against the comedian for his ‘derogatory’ tweets criticising Supreme Court for granting interim bail to TV journalist Arnab Goswami in an abetment to suicide case.
On Thursday, Two Pune-based lawyers and one law student also sought the Attorney General’s consent to initiate contempt proceedings against the stand-up comedian.
A vacation bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee had ordered the release of Arnab Goswami and two other accused on interim bail in connection with the 2018 abetment to suicide case. The court also directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure the order is followed immediately.
