New Delhi: Yahoo India, facing trial for hosting objectionable material on its website, has told a Delhi court that the suit against it was "motivated" and should be dismissed.
"The suit is a complete abuse of the process of law," Yahoo India said in its reply to the court's direction to 21 social networking and other sites to remove objectionable content from their web pages.
The suit should be dismissed, Yahoo India urged the court.
Administrative Civil Judge Praveen Singh, at the last hearing Feb 6, had directed the websites to file a written statement within 15 days and had warned them against displaying objectionable content on their sites.
Tuesday was the deadline for filing the statements. Yahoo India filed its statement Feb 17.
