(AIR 1963 SC 1295)] which was one of the first instances which incorporated right to privacy with as an integral part of right to life and personal liberty to the most recent judgment in Justice K.S Puttaswamy & Another v. Union of India, wherein the apex court unanimously held that the right to privacy is fundamental right protected under the Constitution.
