An anticipatory bail petition was filed on Monday in the Kerala High Court by Vinitha, wife of the admin of Facebook group ‘Glassile Nurayum Platile Curryum’ [fizz in glass and curry on the plate (GNPC)], in a case registered against her on a charge of promoting use of liquor.
According to the petitioner, she was not an admin of the group nor was she a functionary of the group GNPC. In fact, her husband Ajith Kumar T.L. had started a secret Facebook group in 2017. It was not accessible to the general public.
No person could enter the group without being invited. It was a platform for the members to share their happiest moments and introduce place of interests.
The group which had 18-lakh members from all over the world had not violated any of the laws of the land. It was not indulging in any illegal activities or posting offensive pictures.
