Kerala Police can now arrest anyone for disseminating content to defame on social media

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan has signed the Kerala Police Act Amendment ordinance aiming to prevent cyber attack against women and children.
The Act with addition of Section 118-A stipulates either imprisonment for up to five years or a fine of up to Rs 10,000 or both to those who violate the rule.

However, Opposition parties alleged that it would curtail the freedom of expression.

Those who produce, publish or disseminate content through any means of communication with an intention to defame anybody can be arrested by the police without getting a complaint from anybody.
