PM Narendra Modi in ‘top 10 criminals’: Internet giant Google gets court notice

Allahabad: A local court here has issued notices to global search engine company Google, its CEO and India head for listing Prime Minister Narendra Modi among top 10 criminals in the world. 

A Times of India report said on Wednesday that the court has also directed concerned authorities to register a criminal complaint case against Google and its top executives.

The court passed the order while hearing a complaint filed by advocate Sushil Kumar Mishra. The court also posted the matter for hearing on August 31.

In his complaint, the advocate said that Google search engine showed PM Modi among "top ten criminals of the world," which is a huge disrespect to the Indian Republic.

Gupta said he had written to Google asking it to remove Modi's name but got no response.

He then moved an application before the chief judicial magistrate but his plea was dismissed on November 3, 2015, on the grounds that it was a civil case. 

Gupta challenged CJM's order by filing a revision application in court which allowed the revision application and passed the order.
