An issue in India against WhatsApp's new privacy policy  For the first time, a case has been filed in an Indian court against the new policy issued by the messaging app WhatsApp. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has filed a lawsuit in the Indian Supreme Court seeking repeal of WhatsApp's new policy of sharing user data with Facebook.
