London, Aug 2 (IANS) A teenager in Britian has been prohibited from using internet after being accused of hacking into the websites of national law enforcement agency and a national health trust.

Jake Davis of the remote north of Scotland appeared at London’s City of Westminster magistrate’s court Monday for hacking into the websites of the Serious Organised Crime Agency and a national health trust, the Daily Express reported Tuesday.

Though district judge Howard Riddle granted him bail, Davis was told that he could neither access internet through a computer or a mobile phone nor could he ask someone else to do it on his behalf.

He has also been asked to live with his mother at her home in Spalding town of Lincolnshire county, wear an electronic tag and stay indoors between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.

Davis, 18, was arrested at his home in the Shetland islands by police probing incidents, including attacks on Sony and media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s empire.
