New Delhi: Delhi High Court today asked the city government why websites of app-based cabs cannot be blocked on a PIL alleging that these taxi services were operating despite the government banning them.
"Why can't it be done (blocking the sites)? You can block the sites. There is a wing of Delhi Police working on that. You get instructions and file an affidavit," a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw said.
The court also issued notice to the Centre, Delhi government and the city police seeking their responses by February 25, the next date of hearing.
The petition by Harkesh Gupta, filed through advocate Rajat Sehgal has contended that the January 1 order (banning app-based cabs) of the government is being violated by various app-based cab services which continue to operate and offer their services through their sites.
