Mumbai, May 4: Google has reportedly agreed to help Mumbai police investigate objectionable material posted on Orkut and also provide user info relating to illegal or inappropriate material.

Under the arrangement agreed between the parties, police will flag objectionable material on Orkut and send an email to Google. But this can only be done after police has registered a case with an Indian court.

"There is freedom on the Internet, but it shouldn't be so free that it affects our society," deputy commissioner of police Sanjay Mohite said.

Google informs it will seek to strike a balance between protecting Orkut users' privacy and assisting police in the investigations.

This is not the first time that the search engine giant has got into such a deal. Google has signed similar arrangements had with Brazilian police, which logs the highest traffic through Orkut.
