Facebook in police net for blocking a user's profile

Monday November 19, 2012 05:53:36 PM, IANS

Lucknow: A city lawyer and social activist Sunday lodged a first information report (FIR) against popular social networking site Facebook, after his profile was blocked.

The report was filed at the 'cyber crime cell' of the Lucknow police by Prince Lenin, a resident of Hussainganj here.

In his complaint, Lenin alleged that although he had long been a user of Facebook, his profile was recently blocked by the site without so much as informing him or spelling out the reasons for such "one sided and unfair action."

Alleging that blocking his profile on the site was against the natural law of justice, the complainant claimed that even though he had brought the matter to the notice of Facebook, he was told that several complaints were pending against him from other users of the site.

The complainant said that his profile was blocked between Nov 11 and 13.

Lenin also alleged that the complaints against him were made by "anti-social elements" out to defame him, as they were rattled by his work in the social sector, since he had been filing public interest litigations (PILs) against the "high and mighty".

"I filed a PIL in the multi-crore National Rural Health Mission scam. I had been using Facebook to speak my mind in the matter and inform people that I smell conspiracy," Lenin told IANS.

The in-charge of the cyber cell of the police, Dinesh Yadav, confirmed that an FIR had been lodged under Sections 66 and 84 of the Cyber Crime Information Act.

Anyone found guilty under these provisions could face up to three years in jail.
