SC declines plea against frequent internet shutdowns in states

New Delhi, 18/3: The Supreme Court has declined to entertain a plea questioning frequent internet shutdowns by state authorities for various purposes including for preventing cheating in competitive exams.



The top court asked petitioner Chhaya Rani who sought compliance of the Anuradha Bhasin case guidelines laid down by the apex court in 2020 on similar measures undertaken in Jammu and Kashmir, to approach the High Court concerned.


A bench of Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justices P S Narasimha and J B Pardiwala said the petitioner can avail the remedy under Article 226 of the Constitution.
