The Kerala High Court was frowned after one of the attendee of the virtual proceedings appeared bare chested on screen.

The Court while taking cognisance of the behaviour of the attendee said: “This is a court, not a circus or cinema”.

"What is this? What is going on? This is a court, not a circus or a cinema," Justice Devan Ramachandran said.

The remark from the judge came after he noticed one of the attendees of the virtual proceedings in his court not wearing a shirt.

Despite the faux pas being pointed out twice, the individual concerned was slow to act which prompted Justice Ramachandran to say he will remove such persons from the proceedings.

"I will be forced to remove people (from virtual hearing), if they show up for hearing like this," he warned.

The individual concerned, thereafter, logged out.
