The High Court’s interim order came following a petition from the woman asking the Center for instructions to block pornographic sites operating under pseudonyms.

Permanent central government lawyer Anurag Ahluwalia assured the court that the Indian Union will take the necessary steps to remove sites and internet links containing objectionable photographs and videos of the woman and asked for time to file an affidavit.
Lawyer Mamta Jha, representing Google and YouTube, said all URLs, which are with YouTube, have been removed and 10 channels have already been blocked.
