SC warns against clampdown on Covid information on social media

Apr 30, 2021 12:52 IST | By Editorji News Desk

SC on Friday during its big Covid hearing warned against clampdown on information.  Amid the massive surge in Covid-19 cases in the country, the top court said it will treat action by states against people’s appeals on social media as ‘contempt of court’.

Justice Chandrachud held if citizens communicate their grievance on social media and internet then it cannot be said its wrong information. 

The apex court further said it wants to ‘hear the voices of citizens’
