Andhra Pradesh High Court orders CBI probe into social media posts against judiciary

Central Bureau of Investigation has been directed by Andhra Pradesh High Court to investigate in a matter regarding social media post against the Judicial system of the country. CBI was also directed to take necessary steps if there is any threat to judiciary even if it involves arrest of accused persons, irrespective of their post and position.

Justice Rakesh Kumar and Justice Uma Devi were hearing the plea and instructed CBI to investigate regarding social media post. According to the Court, people at high post may start a war against the judicial system of the country. The Court was also of the view that in a democratic state, if such a war is waged against the judicial system by people occupying high positions, it would inevitably create unfounded suspicions in the minds of citizens about the judicial system, which could cripple the entire system.

The Court granted CBI full liberty to file a fresh FIR and also if necessary they can obtain all material from High Court registry.

CBI has also been directed to remove all defamatory posts form social media sites and also to block the user so that they cannot post any more derogatory comments further. CBI was also directed to submit a report in a sealed envelope within eight weeks.
