The SC informs the center of a PIL that has been submitted to obtain guidance on various police powers
The Apex court sent a notice to the Union of India to get its response in a PIL that had been filed to seek instructions from law enforcement and various investigative agencies working under the control of the center and state government.
The PIL was looking for specific instructions regarding the authority to seize, inspect and hold the personal digital and electronic devices, including their contents.
However, the bank only issued one notice to the Union of India. The bank stated that it depends on the response from the Union of India whether or not to send the notice to other states and territories in the Union.
The immediate PIL was submitted by five applicants from different professions. You have focused on academic freedom, which is part of freedom of expression and expression under Article 19 (1) (a). The applicants’ plea also focuses on Article 19 (1) (g), which concerns freedom of occupation and occupation.
The plea also discusses the right to privacy, the right to accuse oneself, the right to privileged communication and the right of the accused to recover the seized material after investigation.
The guidelines include obtaining permission from the magistrate before using the defendant’s personal digital and electronic device. The guidelines also contain handwritten reasons in the event of an urgent seizure of the device and the reasons for the rightful owner.
The petition also calls on states to provide instructions on how to curb abuse of interference to promote the peaceful exercise of fundamental rights for individuals.
