New Delhi, August 5
The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a senior Army officer’s plea challenging the Indian Army’s recent policy banning armed forces personnel from using social networking platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
A bench of justices Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Asha Menon while pronouncing the order said: “Sorry we are dismissing. Thank you.”
The Army officer had sought an interim relief that he be allowed to retain his Facebook (FB) account in a deactivated form till the court decides whether to entertain his petition after going through the Army’s policy under challenge.
According to the new June 6 policy, all Indian Army personnel have been ordered to delete their accounts from Facebook, Instagram and 87 other applications.
The petition has sought a direction to the Director-General of Military Intelligence to withdraw its June 6 policy. PTI
