India court scraps online arrest law

Facebook

India’s Supreme Court has struck down a controversial law which allowed police to arrest people for comments on social networks and other internet sites.

The court ruled that the controversial Section 66A of the Information Technology Act was “unconstitutional” and must go.

In recent years, several people have been arrested for their comments on Facebook or Twitter, sparking outrage.

Critics said the law restricted the principle of free speech.
