Supreme court hears plea on Right to Privacy after Death
The Supreme Court of India raised question on Right to Privacy after Death while it was hearing a matter in which fingerprints of late Jayalatithaa was sought. A challenge was laid to the order of the Madras High Court which had ordered the production of Aadhaar data records of Jayalalithaa in a bid to verify her fingerprints. Certain leaders of the AIADMK had sought for fingerprints of the late leader. The Supreme Court, however, stayed the order of the Madras High Court. It was argued in the court that the fundamental right to privacy exists even after a person's death.
