Tweeter arrested; India's march toward a true police state continues

http://j.mp/Wc0FPS  (The Hindu)

   "Does a tweet on reports of corruption, sent out to 16 followers,
    deserve a possible penalty of three years of imprisonment? The answer
    seems to be yes, at least according to Congress leader and Union
    Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's son Karti, who filed a complaint
    against small-time Puducherry businessman Ravi Srinivasan, and the
    Puducherry police which charged Mr. Srinivasan under Section 66-A of
    the Information Technology Act, 2008."
