Chandigarh:

After facing the wrath of the Punjab and Haryana high court for posting an “inappropriatelyworded” tweet, an accused in a stalking case has pledged not to ever post such messages on social media and given an undertaking that he will not even “use smartphone for a period of six months”.


The high court accepted his apology for “inappropriately worded post” on social media on condition of imposing cost of Rs 20,000 on him.

The petitioner in this case is an accused in another case under sections 354-D (stalking), 506 (criminal intimidation) and other sections of the Information Technology Act. The original case was registered against the man at Karnal city police station on October 19, 2018, on the complaint of a woman for stalking. The high court had granted him anticipatory bail on February 21, 2019, subject to the condition that he would join investigation in the case.

Petitioner’s unconditional apology accepted: HC

The petitioner had joined the investigation conducted by the Karnal police, in accordance with the directions of the high court.

However, during pendency of the case, the petitioner posted a message on Twitter, which was “inappropriately worded” and “unwarranted”. The message was taken from the petitioner’s Twitter account by the woman who had accused him of stalking and was shown to the bench headed by Justice Hari Pal Verma of the high court.

When the petitioner was confronted with his tweet, he tendered unconditional apology in the high court. He submitted that he did not intend to show this message either to the complainant woman and it did not refer to any court. He then gave an undertaking before the bench that “in future, he will not post any such message on Twitter and will not use smartphone for a period of six months from the date of filing the present affidavit.”

He also undertook neither to chat with the complainant woman nor to post any type of tweet on the Twitter against her.

“Though the message posted by the petitioner on Twitter cannot be appreciated in any manner, but considering the nature of dispute between the parties, the unconditional apology tendered by the petitioner is hereby accepted. However, subject to the condition that he shall deposited a sum of Rs 20,000 with the Bar Association of this court within a period of one month, failing which the present petition shall be deemed to have been dismissed,” ordered Justice Hari Pal Verma while giving conditional relief to the accused.
