Yashwant- बिटिया एलएलबी थर्ड इयर में है. उससे कल मैंने कहा कि लीगल नोटिस का जवाब तैयार करो वरना मैं मानूंगा कि तुम्हारी पढ़ाई लिखाई सब बेकार है 🙂 उसने आधे घंटे में जो कच्चा-पक्का माल तैयार किया, उसे नोटिस भेजने वाली लॉ फर्म को जवाब में भेज दिया. देखें आप भी लॉ के एक शिशु द्वारा तैयार जवाब…
First and foremost, we acknowledge and respect the right to privacy as enshrined under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. However, it is our contention that the video in question does not constitute a breach of privacy nor does it serve as an attempt to defame Ms. Sweta Singh.

The video in question contains a conversation of public relevance, wherein Ms. Sweta Singh willingly engaged in dialogue with the journalist present in the video regarding a matter of public concern. Our intention in sharing this video was solely to provide transparency and to facilitate public discourse on the matter at hand.
Furthermore, it is important to note that the video captures Ms. Sweta Singh expressing her own views, without any alteration or misrepresentation.
