The apex court took strong note of Arul Mozhi Selvan's bid to approach it and slapped a fine of Rs 50,000 on him for abusing the process of law and wasting judicial time.

A bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud asked him to deposit the cost with the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA).

The SCBA would use the money in upgrading its library, it said.

Selvan was stopped from clicking pictures of the RBI building in central Delhi by the security guards.

He filed the petition against RBI alleging violation of his fundamental rights.
