Kapil Sibal vs Netizens Two Mumbai Facebookers arrested under Section 66 (A) of the IT Act, passed under the IT minister’s watch. After an outcry, Sibal came up with the perfect solution. Not to repeal the section or amend it, as demanded. He reposed faith in the official hierarchy. Blaming junior cops, he put their seniors in charge of arrests made under the section.
