The websites which gave digvijaya “acute mental pain and agony”

The Congress general secretary has registered an FIR against 10 websites -including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter – for allegedly carrying out “highly offensive, annoying, insulting and injurious” content against him in the form of messages, pictures and other data on their respective sites.

The four-page FIR was lodged with the economic offences wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police on Thursday evening. Besides the hugely popular networking sites, sundry other websites dealing with e-retail – including sulekha.com, msn.com, youbihar. com, ibibo.com, NewsofDelhi. com, DimagKharab.com – have also been named in the FIR. The 20 users posted “defamatory comments and objectionable material”, Singh claimed.

Soon after the complaint was lodged, the police immediately ensured the removal of all offensive material from the websites and initiated an investigation into the matter. The “material” included offensive remarks on Singh’s character and his morphed images.

The Congress leader’s counsel Rohit Kochhar said his client had instructed him not to comment on the subject. “All I can say is that the case has been booked under various Sections of the I&T Act…which attracts imprisonment up to three years,” he added.

The FIR, a copy of which is available with Mail Today, states that Singh is aggrieved by the “unlawful activities” of various websites that have committed “serious criminal offence” by using computer resources to send and post “menacing, annoying, insulting and injurious” content, messages, pictures and other data.

The complaint adds that the disparaging content is “grossly offensive, menacing in character” and designed to cause “annoyance, injury and insult to the Congress leader and his reputation”. The issue has caused “acute mental pain and agony” to Singh, his family members, friends and colleagues. The report adds: “The issue is also causing grave damage and injury to the reputation, goodwill and image of the Congress.”

The case has been registered under Sections 66 and 79 of the IT Act, 2000. Singh has urged the Delhi Police to ask the website owners to expeditiously reveal the identity of the culprits, who have acted “unlawfully” by posting and spreading offensive material against him.

According to the complaint filed with the police, the social networking sites and other websites “cannot absolve themselves from the duty of being responsible and diligent service providers”. In an attempt to lend weight to his complaint, Singh has also mentioned a line about his “successful political career and highest standards of integrity, hard work and patriotism”.

I don’t care if he books me too. I am will go to jail, but only one question to him, what about the mental agony he has caused to millions of viewers with his new new khulasa’s to the media which he has still to prove. The only thing that he has proved till now beyond doubt is his stupidity.
