Dear Sir / Madam,
Your website and internet applications are governed by the Information Technology Act, 2000. To keep it simple, as I have already replied earlier, if you have the IP Address of the miscreant on your server, you should provide it to the Police. If it on a domain or hosting server which is not under your monitoring control, you should inform the Police of this fact, and provide them with the name of the person who controls and monitors the hosting server, so that the Police follow up with that person for the information.
YES, it is safe for you. And there in no cyber rule or law which states that the Terms of Service / Usage page of each and every website, has to be validated by the Government.
