It was a random post, didnít mean to offend, say women in FB row

Government sources said that despite the local police officer being advised against applying Section 66 of the IT Act, action was taken against the two girls. The officer was advised by his senior not to register a criminal case in the matter. Senior police officials admitted the case did not merit the sections applied, and that it was almost a foregone conclusion that legal opinion sought as part of the inquiry would prove this.

The police officials said that, in all likelihood, a C summary report might be filed by the police stating there was no evidence against the two women. Once this is done, the women would have legal recourse to seek action against the officers who registered the case against them.
