An Example

* Tweets can spell trouble in divorce cases

Pavan Duggal, a Supreme Court lawyer
"The IT Act of 2000 was primarily legislation promoting e-commerce and the concept of social networking was not even heard of then. Thus, this clause was incorporated because of the widespread use of microblogging and social networking sites."
"This trend is catching up now, specially in divorce cases, although it started only last year,"


Citing Anu Sharma's example, Duggal said:
"Her husband used to give her excuses that he was going out on business tours. But instead he would meet friends and socialise. Finally, he was caught when on one of his 'so called' business tours,
he tweeted: 'Having a great time with friends over beer, I am in town, come over and join me.'

"Tweets and status messages are usually taken up as secondary evidence. And they are as important as the primary ones,"
.
He said even an angry tweet or status message like, "I hate my wife", if produced in court as a printout or screen shot becomes secondary evidence.

"Any written word available in the public domain can be used under this Act. A statement like this can be used on grounds of mental cruelty,"
-

Karnika Seth, attorney at law firm Seth Associates who specialises in cyber crime.

"There are couples who are filing for divorce on reasons which could not have been proved before, but with tweets and status message updating several times a day, it works as additional evidence, often making adultery easy to prove,".

She also added that many people used to hire private detectives, but this had become a new way of finding the truth.

"In one such case, a man had e-mailed threatening messages to his wife. His IP address could be traced, but the message was not digitally signed, thus the messages were taken as a secondary evidence and a divorce case was filed."

A numeric address or domain name given to a website to track it is called IP address. Digital signatures are specially designed icons or even one's original sign encrypted on the e-mails are the two criteria on the basis of which primary or secondary evidence is distinguished.
Blogs and chat messages can also be used as evidence.
As the clause is only a few months old, no specific statistics is available yet on how many people have used tweets or status messages in legal matters.

  1. If the judiciary will continue to fail delivering justice,people will start taking the law into their hands,especially when it comes to cases like this where a father is seeking justice for his murdered son.If that happens it could be very well the beginning of the end of India as a civilized society.
