Meera Emmanuel March 24 2018

A Delhi court recently allowed the service of summons in a criminal case, through whatsapp, text message and e-mail.

An order to this effect was passed last month by Justice Surabhi Sharma Vats in a domestic violence/maintenance case filed under Section 125 of the Criminal Code of Procedure.

The request made for serving summons through digital means was allowed, following submissions made by the petitioner, apprising the Court that the respondent resides in Australia.
