Right to be forgotten: Delhi High Court issues notice to Google, Twitter in plea by man convicted by UK Court

The Delhi High Court Thursday sought response of the Centre, Google, Twitter and two media houses on a man’s plea seeking removal of certain articles from Internet relating to his conviction in a fraud and blackmailing case abroad, on the grounds that he has a right to privacy. Justice Rekha Palli issued notices and sought replies from the information as well as communications ministries, Google LLC, Twitter and the two media houses on the petition and fixed the matter for December 13, when other similar pleas are also listed.

The man said he was convicted by a Leicester Crown Court in a fraud and blackmailing case and was sentenced to nine years imprisonment and after serving the sentence, he was deported to India in July this year, when he came to know about the articles relating to his 2015 conviction that were accessible on Internet.
