News website Firstpost’s news satire offering Faking News debuted as “evidence” in court on Tuesday when Nitin Gadkari’s lawyers alleged contempt against Arvind Kejriwal based on a “news item”, reported Firstpost.

Gadkari, represented by senior advocate Pinky Anand in his defamation case against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kejriwal, cited the Faking News “report” to tell the court that Kejriwal was planning to teach law to all the judges of this country by offering free home tuitions. An act of hubris, they claimed, constituted contempt of court.

The lawyer representing Gadkari withdrew the submission in court, as an “inadvertent mistake”, after it turned out that his evidence was actually a news satire column, reported the TOI.
