SC frowns on social media misuse


In its bid to crack down on misuse of social media, the Supreme Court of India on Tuesday asked the Centre to frame a specific set of guidelines for social media, in a plea seeking to link the Aadhaar with social media accounts.

The Supreme Court has sought a report from the Centre within the next 21 days on the same. 'We can't get away by saying that we don't have a technology to track originators of online crime, if there is a technology to do it, then there is a technology to stop it,' the Supreme Court said.

The court had earlier this month asked the Centre to apprise the apex court by September 24 (today) about any policy they plan to formulate in the future to link Aadhaar with social media profiles.
