The Delhi High Court has ordered the suspension of the documentary Big Little Murder. The action was in relation to a complaint filed by Ryan International School.
The Gurugram-based school had filed a complaint against the documentary's airing. According to the ruling, the streaming can continue after erasing all the scenes containing allusions to the school.
The Big Little Murder is about a 7-year-old boy who was found dead in the toilet of Ryan International School. The documentary aired on August 6, 2021, features pictures of school buildings and references to the school. The school authorities approached the court against this.
“The defendants are restrained from streaming, broadcasting, telecasting, etc. the documentary titled "A big Little Murder" or any of its abridged versions. I may clarify that the defendants may stream the said documentary after deleting all references to the plaintiff school in question and deleting the portion where the building of the school is depicted;” Justice Jayant Nath said.
The seven-year-old boy was found dead in the school restroom on February 8, 2017. Police arrested the conductor of the school bus in connection with the incident.
However, it was later revealed that an 11th class student of the same school was behind the murder.
