    [caption id="attachment_1455" align="aligncenter" width="276"]Supreme Court Supreme Court[/caption] The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked Section 66 A of the Information and Technology Act, which allows police to arrest people on the basis of what they post on the facebook, twitter and internet. The court said Section 66 A was unconstitutional because it failed two major tests - the clear and present danger test and the tendency to create public disorder test. Section 66A of the IT Act is a relevant section which penalizes ‘sending false and offensive messages through communication services’.   Note: For more updates on topics asked in CLAT, keep visiting CLAT Gurukul which is a knowledge sharing initiative of The Knowledge Tree, Patna's premier coaching institute for CLAT and for other law entrance exams like AILET, SET, LSAT etc.
