"In order to make Respondent No.6 (WhatsApp) accountable, it must be directed to comply with Indian Law and appoint Grievance Officer, who shall be the person to address grievance of consumers, as well as coordinate with investigating agencies", the petition said.
Researchers have uncovered security shortcomings in WhatsApp that create a means for hackers to intercept and manipulate messages sent in both private and group conversations.

In a bid to curbfake news menace in India, Facebook Inc's WhatsApp officially rolled out forward message limit on Wednesday.
As per the New York Post, WhatsApp has "acknowledged" the flaw, adding it's part of the app's "design framework", while remarking its open to further discussion. A common problem is seen of spread of messages claiming to offer free vouchers, airline tickets, with fake links being shared.
WhatsApp specifically faced the anger of Indian regulators following the spread of a false or fake message, which circulated on the messaging app's platform and caused a series of mobbing and crowd beatings throughout the nation.
It also pointed out various rumour based crimes that had happened in the country and said that the growth of such incidents was directly proportional to the growth of the user base of messaging services like WhatsApp. Whatsapp will basically check whether a URL shared by users belongs to a reputed neighborhood or not.
Regarding the novel feature, it said in a blogpost, "Today, we're launching a test to limit forwarding that will apply to everyone using WhatsApp". However a user could go back to the message and forward it again to another five contacts or groups.
