New Delhi: An illustrator of a prominent
national daily was on Wednesday hauled up by a court here for making
sketches showing the ongoing proceedings of 2G spectrum scam
case.

The artist, who was drawing the images of high-profile
accused, including DMK MP Kanimozhi, by standing near the
bench was first asked by the court staff to stop doing that.
The caricaturist then took the rear seat but was again
caught sketching the images of those present and set-up of the
courtroom by the court staff who reported it to the Special
CBI Judge O P Saini.
The judge took exception to his action and warned him
that strong action could be taken against him for breaking
the decorum of the courtroom.

The court took the copy of the identity card of the
artist and destroyed the sketches made by him in the
courtroom.
