Centre not co-operating in complaint against websites: Court

Complaint against websites

Amar Chand had earlier told the court to start extradition proceedings to secure the presence of the websites based abroad and had referred to the MLAT between the US and India saying instead of issuing summonses against them, it should initiate extradition proceedings.

The court, however, had said it would not initiate the extradition proceedings and had asked the official to assist the complainant's counsel in filling the forms for service of

summonses.

The websites named in the complaint include Facebook, Orkut, YouTube, Yahoo, Blogspot, Google and Microsoft.

The court earlier on June 8 had directed the Union Home ministry to get the summonses served to various US-based websites.

The Centre had earlier told the court that there was sufficient material to proceed against the websites for the alleged offences.

The court had on December 23 last year issued summons to 21 social networking websites on the complaint.
