SIR, THE ABOVE PENALTY IS APPLICABLE EVEN when asked by the CYBER POLICE? MEANING FAILURE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AFTER THE CYBER POLICE HAS ASKED THE ACCUSED TO DO SO?
BECAUSE WE CANT GO TO COURT( CYBER CRIME , APPELLATE). police are still in the process of investigation and information is not furnished despite their email( one month now).
the cyber appellate tribunal is just one man body( chaired by IT secretary right?). could you tell me who is that in karnataka here?
I need some help.
