New Delhi, August 07, 2020 (PPI-OT): The Indian Supreme Court, today, asked the Narendra Modi government and the administration of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to come up with a definite and final stand on resumption of 4G internet services in the territory by 11 August. Hearing a contempt petition filed by an NGO, the court also asked both to explore possibilities of restoring the network in some areas in the territory.
“There is no question of further adjournment,” a special three-judge bench led by Justice N.V. Ramana told solicitor general, Tushar Mehta, as it fixed the next date of hearing in the case on August 11.
The court was hearing a contempt petition filed by NGO Foundation for Media Professionals (FMP) against the Indian government and the IIOJK administration for non-compliance of the Indian SC order to constitute a three-member high-powered committee to look into the issue of restoring 4G services in the occupied territory.
