Right to know the physical address of an ip address
(Querist) 26 July 2008
This query is : Resolved
I would like to know if a victim is being harassed with e-mails, can that victim find the physical address of the offender using the ip address of the emails received, without taking any permissions.
If any such permissions are needed, please kindly let me know the sections of IT act 2000 under which the guidelines are provided. Where should the victim approach and is it true that the victim has to take permission from the magistrate of a district level court to know the physical address of the ip address from which he is receiving e-mails?
In case the victim finds the physical address of the ip address (without taking any permission) by other means is he punishable. If so under which sections is he punishable.

Better to lodge a complaint in the concerned police station they will trace the address of the offender using the ip address of the emails received in the inquiry.
