The Supreme Court Friday sought a response from the Centre on a plea alleging that the internet service providers, without being heard, are forced by the government to remove "objectionable" contents posted on their websites by third parties.
Facebook India contended that it does not control or operate the servers that host the website, which are located in the US.
The court had on April 12 dropped Google India and others from the suit after the plaintiff said he had no objection to it.
The US-based search engine Google Inc on Thursday told a Delhi court that that it has already removed alleged objectionable contents from its web posts.
