One of my client has sent messages from Chandigarh to Agra to some persons at face-book, saying a woman as prostitute and her husband(Complainant) as her tout. FIR u/s 67 IT Act has been registered at Rohatak. Complainant is alleging that he got information of said message at Rohatak. Police has served a notice u/s 41A to the client. What is the legal position regarding jurisdiction ? Please also tell whether section 67 IT Act attracts in this matter.
As per your profile, you have 35 years of professional experience as a lawyer out of which you earned experience of 8 years as Asst District Attorney also. But I find the description of your query like a riddle.
You have raised a question about legal jurisdiction. But the query does not indicate any particulars of the complainant and his concern with location, i.e., the person who received the message, the husband of the lady targeted, the lady herself, or someone else with what connection at Rohtak, when the message was sent from Chandigarh to Agra resident, but registered at Rohtak.
