Google finds itself in a legal soup in India with an Allahabad court sending notice to the global search engine for allegedly listing PM Narendra Modi among top 10 criminals in the world.

According to a TOI report, the notice has been sent to Google, its CEO and the company’s India head. A criminal case will also be registered against Google and its officials, the report said.

The Court’s direction comes after a complaint filed by an advocate. The complainant reportedly said that when one uses Google to search for the “top ten criminals of the world”, PM Modi’s image is shown.

The complainant also claims to have written to Google asking the search giant to remove the Prime Minister’s image but did not elicit any response.

The search giant is already fighting multiple cases across the world for cases such as “abuse of monopoly”.
