The judgment is reproduced here verbatim.






CRL. O.P. NO. 27389 OF 2013

ADV. R.Mahalakshmi

D/o Rajagopal                                                                      Petitioner


1.  The Commissioner of Police

Greater Chennai, Egmore

2. The Inspector of Police

Cyber Crime, Greater Chennai

Egmore, Chennai                                                                 Respondents

Petition praying that in the circumstances stated therein and in the affidavit filed therewith the High Court will be pleased to direct the 2nd respondent to register a case on the complaint on 07.09.2013 and take action against all the accused.

ORDER : – This petition coming on for orders upon perusing the petition and the affidavit filed in support thereof and the order of this court dated 20.03.2014 and made in Crl. O.P. No. 27389 / 2013 and upo hearing the arguments of Mr.P.Wilson, Additional Solicitor General for Mrs.P.Mahalakshmi, Advocate for petitioner and Mr.C.Emalias, Additional Public Prosecutor appearing on behalf of the respondents, this Court made the following order :-

Today the matter is listed under the caption “for being spoken to”.

2.         Learned Counsel for petitioner submits that offending material is still being displayed on the site answering to the name http://www.savukku.net.

3.         Mr.P.Wilson, learned Additional Solicitor General of India, submits that viewing the site http://www.savukku.net in India stands blocked.   To this end, learned Additional Solicitor General of India has placed the communication dated 20.03.2014.   However learned Additional Solicitor General of India, states that even so, the offending material is being displayed through URLs which even accessed link on thereto.

4.         Under orders dated 20.03.2014, the second respondent was put upon duty in the following words:

“4. The second respondent is directed to ensure that the contents of the offending website (www.savukku.net) are not displayed in any form.  Towards this end, there shall be a direction to the second respondent to intimate each and every instance of display of the offending site to the Group Coordinator (Joint Secretary), Cyber Law Division, Department of Information Technology, Government of India, Electronic Niketan No.6, Central Govt. Offices Complex, New Delhi 110 003.  Upon receipt of such intimation of the second respondent, the authority aforementioned shall block the sites displaying the contents of http://www.savukku.net”

5.         On instructions and stating that the second respondent is action in obedience of the order, learned Public Prosecutor places before this Court the communication dated 11.04.2014 addressed to the Emergency Response Team, (CERT-In), Department of Information Technology, Government of India, Electronic Niketan No.6, Central Govt. Offices Complex, New Delhi 110 003.  This makes one thing clear.  The second respondent has not abided with the order of this Court.  As against the requirement placed upon him under paragraph No.4 of the order dated 20.03.2014, the communication dated 03.12.2013 and a further communication dated 11.03.2014 addressed to Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), Department of Information Technology, Ministry of Communications and Technology, Government of India, is placed to inform obedience of the order.  Rather than hold the second respondent guilty of disobedience of our order and proceed against him, this Court would put his action in the realm of incompetence.  It becomes necessary to pass the following order:

(i) By way of clarification, the Group Co-ordinator (Joint Secretary), Cyber Law Division, Department of Information Technology, , Ministry of Communications and Technology, Government of India, Electronic Niketan No.6, Central Govt. Offices Complex, New Delhi 110 003, is informed that the offending material displayed through the use of any URL from anywhere in the globe shall be blocked.

(ii) The second respondent shall be divested of his duty to act under order reproduced above.  The duty informed in paragraph No.4 of the order dated 20.03.2014 regards intimation of instance of display of offending material shall now be performed by the Additional Commissioner of Police, Central Crime Branch, Chennai.   It is hoped that the seriousness of the public and social issue involved will be realised and due action taken.  This Court makes clear that in the event of any disobedience of this order, the petitioner informing that such is still the case, shall be viewed seriously and persons responsible will be called upon to answer before this Court.

(iii) The Additional Commissioner of Police, Central Crime Branch, Chennai is directed to coordinate his activities towards obedience of this order with Director (DS.II), Department of Information Technology, , Ministry of Communications and Technology, Government of India, New Delhi and Group Co-ordinator and Director General (CERT) Ministry of Communication and Information Technology,  Government of India, New Delhi.  In the event of the purpose not being achieved despite such co-ordination, the Additional Commissioner of Police, Central Crime Branch, Chennai may address and take up the issue with the Secretary, Ministry of Communications and Technology, Government of India, New Delhi.

Google Reads All Emails Justifies Rightly

In internet on April 16, 2014 at 23:05

Google has admitted to reading  all the Email contents in , what it terms as to ‘to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customised

search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.”


Google reads emails as part of its service

Google says the change in its policy allowing the company to trawl through emails will give “people even greater clarity”. Photo: AP


Privacy goes through the Window!


But it may be added that if you need personalized recommendations from the Service provider, I do not think there is any other option but to agree to what Google says.

Google is right.

One can not have the cake and eat it too


Google Inc updated its terms of service on Monday, informing users that their incoming and outgoing emails are automatically analyzed by software to create targeted ads.

The revisions more explicitly spell out the manner in which Google software scans users’ emails, both when messages are stored on Google’s servers and when they are in transit, a controversial practice that has been at the heart of litigation.

Last month, a U.S. judge decided not to combine several lawsuits that accused Google of violating the privacy rights of hundreds of millions of email users into a single class action.

Users of Google’s Gmail email service have accused the company of violating federal and state privacy and wiretapping laws by scanning their messages so it could compile secret profiles and target advertising. Google has argued that users implicitly consented to its activity, recognizing it as part of the email delivery process.

Google’s updated terms of service added a paragraph stating that “our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.”

A Google representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mass Graves Of Sri Lanka Photo Essay

In Sri Lanka, SriLanka on March 2, 2014 at 00:01

I have posted exhaustively on the war crimes committed by Sri Lanka in trying to exterminate the Tamils there.

Mass murder was no an exception but a rule.

Mass graves keep on coming out.

Today a new mass grave has been found.

A look at the Mass Graves.

Mass Garve at Matale, Sri Lanka

Mass Grave, Matale

The total number of human skeletal remains unearthed from a mass grave behind the Matale Hospital has risen to 142 since the excavation started in early November last year.


The skeletal remains have been sent for carbon dating in a bid to establish the era the grave came into existence, officials said.



Some argue that the grave contains the victims of the aborted 1971 armed insurrection of the Janatha Vimukthi Perumana (JVP) in 1971 while there are others who say it could go back to the 18th century during the colonial era.

Graves At Mullivaykkal

Mullivaikkal Graves

[TamilNet, Monday, 01 October 2012, 22:21 GMT]
An official who recently visited the outskirts of Mu’l’livaaykkaal with the soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army told TamilNet this week that he had personally witnessed skeletal remains of hundreds of slain people surfacing along the few kilometers long, L-shaped bunker, running from Vadduvaakal to northwards along the land of the genocidal onslaught. A vast area is still not cleared and is strictly prohibited from access to anyone except SL military officials. “There are booby traps and UXOs. Rotten automatic rifles and RPG ammunitions are lying around in the area. When I walked across a bunker, I was able to sense that it was a bunker of mass slaughter. As the bodies buried underneath have rotten, the soil was going under as we walked across,” he said. Meanwhile, some other mass graves show the use of chemicals that have burnt even the bones to become ashes, journalists report.



The end of war in Sri Lanka, captured for posterity by Google Earth published last week by Groundviews was the first look at the end of the war in Sri Lanka through historical satellite imagery freely accessible via Google Earth. The article was an open invitation for those using Google Earth to scan for and alert others over areas and artefacts of interest, that in turn could strengthen discussions around the hellish final weeks of war in Sri Lanka. Given the nature of imagery from around this period and centred on Nandikadal, the article explicitly noted,

What Google Maps and Earth does NOT enable one to do, given (1) the quality of some of the historical imagery (which sometimes features extensive cloud cover of vast regions) and (2) the large gaps between the available historical imagery (mid March, late May, after the official end of the war and killing of the LTTE’s leader, then mid-June and early August) is any robust analysis on when shelling in a specific region took place, and importantly, by whom.

Shared widely on Facebook, Twitter and via email, the article clearly indicated that one of the best references today for the research and study of the end of war in Sri Lanka is Google Earth. Imagery accessible via Google’s servers simply isn’t available through other sources or archived elsewhere in the public domain.

Whereas the previous article studied the sheer scale and extent of the destruction and human displacement in Sri Lanka during the final phase of the war, between March and May 2009, the focus here is on mass graves in and around the so-called Civilian Safe Zones (CSZs). Our first article was anchored to two key UNOSAT reports. The present study is anchored to the High-Resolution Satellite Imagery and the Conflict in Sri Lanka report by the Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law Programme of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), published in August 2009. As with the UNOSAT reports, the AAAS study – commissioned by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International – was met with official condemnation and Ministry of Defence counter-analysis after its public release, largely anchored to the sections dealing with the removal of IDP structures within the CSZ between 6 and 10 May 2009,..

UFOs On Moon Sighted Google Maps

In Astrophysics on January 20, 2014 at 19:33

Google maps have captured objects resembling UFOs on Moon and there is speculation that it could be  a base for Alien ships.

NASA is yet to deny this.


“A strange unnatural giant anomaly has been found on Google Earth/Moon by videographer wowforreeel.


UFO on Moon

UFO On Moon Google maps


UFO triangulate on Moon.

UFOs Triangulate on Moon

Wowforreeel: “After going there on Google Moon and staring at this thing for quite a long time I can say yes, it is really there, not faked and I have no clue what it is. I found nothing else like it in any of the other craters.”

Is it an alien moon base or alien craft or is it possible it could be a facility, as part of a secret space project, built by humans and used for storing and launching ‘UFO’ spacecraft?

Or is it a giant triangular man-made spacecraft? The seven lights on the perfectly formed triangle wedge seem to be intelligently designed.

Is this evidence of the existence of the secret space program (Project Solar Warden) what Gary McKinnon claimed to have found on the US government computers?

Coordinates: 22°42’38.46″N 142°34’44.52″E”


Here it can be recalled that recently a terrified pilot of a passenger jet reported a near miss in which a rugby ball-shaped UFO passed within a few feet of his aircraft while flying near Heathrow Airport, baffling aviation authorities in London. The captain of the A320 Airbus told British aviation authorities who have investigated the incident that he was certain the object was going to crash into his aircraft and ducked as it headed towards him. The investigation has been unable to establish any earthly identity for the mysterious craft, which left the aircrew with no time to take evasive action. The incident occurred while the plane was cruising at 34,000ft, around 32 km west of the airport, over the Berkshire countryside, The Telegraph reported.

Blog Plagiarism How To Write Safely

In Blogging on December 26, 2013 at 18:38

The subject of copying ,Plagiarism and Blogposts is very complicated.

People write posts to be read widely.


Do Not copy message.

One has to authenticate a Story or information in a Post.

(As when you write on Subjects, .present research papers where you need authenticity.

You then have open sources like wiki.)

If one is commenting on an issue,one has to quote the source.

While quoting ‘portions of the news,Story has to be posted in the post one is writing.

What is Plagiarism in a Blog?

In general quoting some one else’s post/information  word for word ,quotes without permission,or quoting information provided by others as one’s own with slight modifications.is generally classified as Plagiarism.

If one were to post entirely on one’s own, the post may not be interesting without references, , in the case of information, there will be lack of authenticity.

And again Link building?

Does it not amount to using others whole posts under one Link?

There is no answer to this query.

There are soft-wares to check Plagiarism.

Copyscape is one good site, where one gets to know how the material of similar nature is in the web and it calculates and lets you know what percentage of words are in common.

And there is also the point of Google penalizing your site for Plagiarism and thee are chances of Google Page ranker passing over your site.

You may find more information on Plagiarism, Penalty for Plagiarism at


However, it is safe to cite sources and mark it clearly in the Posts.

It would be good if the source is marked as ‘Source’ in the Post with a Link of the relevant material quoted.

This applies to images as well.

Quote as .image from or image source  the link of the web page from where you are using,

In some case you may get permission from the Authors to use them in your posts.

How many words or what percentage one may use from sources?

It is very delicate and depends on the nature of the Post, the word count of your Post.

It is safe to quote with source maximum 200 words in a Post of 800 words or roughly 25 % at the most.

So it is better to be original and wherever we feel necessary we may use other posts, material with citations, like marked as Source, with words from the source not exceeding 200 words in a Post of 800 words.

Lesser than this is ideal and this depends on your judgement.
