The Supreme Court today admitted a writ petition filed by Quint reporter Poonam Agarwal for a court-monitored investigation into the death of gunner Roy Mathew, to seek guidelines on the application of the Official Secrets Act (OSA) to bring it in line with the Constitution and prevent its misuse,  and to conduct an inquiry into the persistence of the 'sahayak' system in the army. The judges issued notice to the government. The Quint journalist  was charged with spying under the OSA and abetment to suicide under the IPC. Senior advocate Gopal Subramaniam and Adv Prashant Kumar appeared for the petitioner.          

Twitter-happy journalists of the Times Group have been served  a dampener by the organisation's  HR head. A circular says they may not use their personal social media handles to comment on news, politics, civic issues  or crime unless reported by the Group's official social media handles. Nor can they retweet their own stories unless the official Twitter handle has done so. Nor can they use their own Twitter handles to repost invective or opinions which may be against the laws of the land. Why? Because the personal opinions expressed are apparently hurting the "integrity and credibility" of the Times Network platforms.
