Laws Against Cyber bullying In India
What are the laws relating to cyber bullying in India?
- Sector-1, Noida
There is no law that deals with cyber-bullying and online abuse specifically directed at children, nor should there be. The criminalisation of speech is only acceptable in a very narrow set of cases, as the Supreme Court has again stressed in its recent judgment on the Shreya Singhal case (striking down section 66A of the IT Act). Bullying, as well as verbal online abuse of women in fact, in many cases does not fall within those parameters.
