Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Central Government, told a bench of Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Anirudh Bose that the government was going to change the rules to deal with the dangers of those involved in terrorist and anti-national activities.
It is a very public interest to do so. Mehta said, the government is not going to interfere in the privacy of ordinary citizens, but whether terrorists can claim privacy, I do not think so. The Solicitor General stated this after the arguments of senior advocate Shyam Dewan presented by the Internet Freedom Foundation. Diwan said that no such effort should be made so that personal information is sought from the person in the name of the account on social media.
