Under Information Technology Act a person can file Suit under Section 58. Does that mean a suit for privacy violation under 72 of IT act can be civil? Section 72 provides imprisonment but Under IT act most offences are of criminal nature but tribunal have jurisdiction for civil suits for which all all other civil courts do not have jurisdiction.
Please clarify me that if there is a privacy violation suit which is a Cyber Tort does that mean Section 72 will not apply as it is criminal in nature.
