Tamil Nadu man alleges that misinformation on Google Maps led to emotional difficulties, family problems, domestic violence and even torture in his personal life
New Delhi: A resident of Nagapattinam in Tamil Nadu, K Chandrashekhar, has described Google Maps to be his "biggest enemy". Such is the extent of his hatred that Chandrashekhar has now decided to file a police complaint against the tech giant.
In his complaint, Chandrashekhar alleged that Google Maps has been showing his previous locations in places he never visited even once. This, claims the 49-year-old, has caused rift in his domestic life.
“My wife tracks my movements using Google Maps and questions me based on the app's inputs and this has led to a serious crisis in my personal life,” said Chandrashekhar. He further alleged that misinformation on the part of Google Maps has led to emotional difficulties, family problems, domestic violence and even torture.
Owner of a shop, Chandrashekar approached local police in Nagapattinam district's Mayiladuthurai with a complaint. He has alleged that his wife has been tracking his movements using the 'Your Timeline' feature on Google Maps. This has led to domestic problems in his life since the map shows his past locations as places he never visited.
