New Delhi: A Delhi court will hear Yahoo India's petition on Monday seeking for the charges against it to be dropped in the objectionable content case. Yahoo is hoping that it will be granted relief like software giant Microsoft at the hearing.
The Delhi High Court on Friday quashed criminal proceedings against Yahoo India, which was summoned along with 20 other websites to face trial for allegedly hosting objectionable content on their web pages.
"The summons issued against Yahoo India is set aside," Justice Suresh Kait said while allowing the plea of the website that the lower court wrongly issued the process against it, without attributing any specific role to it.
The court, however, said that a private complaint, filed by a scribe Vinay Rai against the website, can be revived if credible and actionable pieces of evidence are filed against it.
