The Madras High Court recently imposed a condition of staying away from social media for one year for granting anticipatory bail to a Tamil Nadu resident who was booked for an alleged derogatory Facebook post against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The police had registered an FIR against Kanyakumari resident Jabin Charles under Section 505 (ii) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 67B of the Information Technology Act for posts relating to the Prime Minister.

"The petitioner had posted a highly derogatory post pertaining to the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India in the face book", observed the Court

Justice G R Swaminathan of Madurai Bench allowed his anticipatory bail applications on the undertaking by the lawyer that he will not use social media for a year.
