Delhi HC to Pass Order on Mahua Moitras Media Leak Complaint
Delhi HC to Pass Order on Mahua Moitras Media Leak Complaint

The Delhi High Court announced that it will give its verdict on February 23 regarding Mahua Moitra's complaint concerning the alleged disclosure of confidential details from the Enforcement Directorate to the media. Moitra, a leader of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), raised concerns about information leaks related to an investigation against her under the Foreign Exchange Management Act. Her legal representatives argued that media reports on summonses issued to her by the agency appeared before she was officially notified.

Justice Subramonium Prasad commented that currently, there wasn't substantial evidence to support the claims made in the news report.

Senior advocate Rebecca John, representing Moitra, emphasized that while Moitra acknowledged the agency's right to investigate, such premature media disclosures were harmful to her case.

The court scheduled further proceedings for the following day.

Advocate Sidhant Kumar, representing a news organization, argued that Moitra, as a public figure facing allegations in the public domain, was subject to public scrutiny, and media reports were based on credible sources.

The Enforcement Directorate's counsel denied any deliberate release or leakage of information from their end.

The Enforcement Directorate had summoned Moitra in connection with a case under the Foreign Exchange Management Act. The agency is scrutinizing transactions involving a non-resident external (NRE) account, along with other foreign remittances and fund transfers.
