Justice Navin Chawla gave Telegram the liberty to furnish the information in a sealed cover, noting that the issue is no longer in dispute following the High Court’s order in Neetu Singh & Anr v. Telegram FZ LLC & Ors.
In that order, the Court had held that Telegram has to adhere to Indian law and disclose details like IP addresses, mobile numbers and devices used in operating channels involved in copyright infringement, if ordered to do so by Indian courts.
“In view of the above, the defendant no.1 (Telegram) shall comply with the direction issued by this Court vide order dated 29.05.2020 within a period of three weeks from today. The information may be disclosed by the defendant no. 1 in a sealed cover. On perusing the information, the Court shall consider if any further directions are required to be passed on the next date of hearing,” the Court said.
