Dear all

I have created anonymous chat app on Android and iPhone. Last month someone created a fake profile on the app and added obscene content and phone number of a girl, which led to harassment to her over phone and whatsapp. She had filed a complaint with cybercrime unit. Cybercrime unit emailed me regarding the user activity and request for deletion of profile, which was promptly done. We only collect IP address and Location data of the profile and the same was supplied to the cybercrime unit.

Now the cybercrime unit is demanding mobile number, email and device ID of the said profile which we don't collect and are threatening me with repercussions.

Now my questions are
1.) Is it mandatory to collect device ID, mobile number or email address from users ?
2.) Do I get protection under section 79 of IT act ?

Any help is greatly appreciated as I am in a lot of distress.
