A justice-bench headed by Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V Kameswar Rao has listed the matter for detail hearing on February 8.

An NGO has filed the petition under Justice for Rights. Advocate Harpreet S. Hora has appeared for the NGO to seek guidelines or law for the regulation of such contents available on these sorts of platforms.

The petition reads that online platforms offer sexually explicit, vulgar, profane, pornographic, religiously forbidden, morally unethical and virulent content in order to attract more subscribers as well as generate profit.

The NGO has accused the most of the content available was in violation of the IPC (Indian Penal Code) and IT (Information Technology) Act.
