The Delhi High Court while considering a petition seeking quashing of an FIR related to a matrimonial dispute, has imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on a petitioner for appearing before it in a vest.

Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar in his order said that that the conduct of the petitioner in appearing before the Court in his vest is totally unacceptable. Bhatnagar also said the petitioner should have appeared before the Court in proper clothes, even though the proceedings were being conducted through a virtual hearing.

The court directed the petitioner to deposit the cost of Rs 10,000 with the Delhi High Court Legal Services Committee within a week. The person on whom the cost has been imposed was one of the accused in the case filed by a woman against her husband and his family members.

The parties had settled their dispute in July this year and approached the court for quashing the FIR. The court allowed the petition and quashed the FIR registered at Safdarjung Enclave police station in 2019.
