Search or seizure of digital devices of journalists a serious issue, there must be guidelines: Supreme Court

In that petition, it has been contended that unbridled powers are now being exercised by investigating agencies when it comes to seizing digital devices that contain “much, if not all, of a citizen’s personal and professional life.”

The petitioners added that such seizures must be done in a civilised by way, guided by the directives of the Supreme Court.

The plea also added that several persons from whom such devices have been seized in the recent past were from the academic field or were authors of repute.
