Order to Jailors to produce Jaya's thumb impression restrained by SC

Madras-High-Court

The Madras High Court order directing Bengaluru jail authorities and the UIDAI to produce records containing the thumb impression of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa has been restrained by the Supreme Court.

SC stayed the order made by the high court hearing an election petition seeking Jayalalithaa's thumb impression details which is available with Bengaluru's Parappana Agrahara Jail and the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).

Court also ordered the petitioner before the high court to file a reply within eight weeks. The stay order was made by SC Bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud.

Petition stated that the high court's direction claiming it intruded into the fundamental right to privacy. Her death does not make any difference as right to privacy is available to every citizen during his/her life time and even after the death of that person.

It pleaded that the personal details of a third party which will undoubtedly include the finger print could not be divulged by the authorities holding the same without consent of the person to whom it belongs.
