The Delhi High Court has restrained online video streaming platform Netflix from showing the documentary titled "A Big Little Murder", said to be based on the tragic death of a 7-year-old boy who was found dead in the washroom of Gurugram based Ryan International School.
The Gurugram based school, through its trust, had approached the Delhi High Court against the streaming of the documentary. The bench of Justice Jayant Nath ruled that the broadcasting can be done only after deleting all references to the plaintiff’s school in question and deleting the portion where the building of the school is depicted.
The plea stated that the said documentary was released on Netflix on August 6, 2021. It was contended by Advocate Virmani and Sandeep Kapur that the documentary used the name and visuals of the school building elaborately, which was done in complete violation of a lower court order dated January 8, 2018. It was also stated in the said order that the real name of the victim, accused and school be not used, and imaginary names ought to be given to them. The name of the school, according to the order dated January 8, 2018, was to be mentioned as “Vidyalaya.”
The matter will be heard next on October 10.
