A court here on Tuesday issued notice to global search engine giant Google, its CEO and India head. The reason is listing Prime Minister Narendra Modi among top 10 criminals in the world. The court also directed registration of a criminal complaint case against Google and its top officials.

The court was hearing a complaint filed by advocate Sushil Kumar Mishra. The next hearing on the case will be on August 31.
The complainant said googling “top ten criminals of the world” showed the photograph of PM Modi. Gupta said he had written to Google asking it to remove Modi’s name but got no response. Gupta also claimed he had approached the police regarding the matter.
He then moved an application before the chief judicial magistrate but his plea was dismissed on November 3, 2015, on the grounds that it was a civil case. Gupta challenged CJM’s order by filing a revision application in court which allowed the revision application and passed the order.
Google in its part said the result was due to its search algorithm.
“These results don’t reflect Google’s opinion or our beliefs; our algorithms automatically matched the query to web pages with these images.”
What happens further is a different thing but defaming a countries Prime Minister is totally unethical and a huge error on google’s behalf. Also the search engine giant has yet not revised its error and the same mistake can be seen up till now.
