Calcutta High Court stays West Bengal internet shutdown

The Calcutta High Court on Thursday stayed the order passed by the State government to shut down internet services in seven districts of West Bengal between March 7 and March 16.

The order was stayed by a Bench of Chief Justice Prakash Shrivastava and Justice Rajarshi Bharadwaj.

The decision was purportedly taken by the State to prevent mass cheating in the upcoming State board exams. It sought to suspend internet services in Malda, Murshidabad, Uttar Dinajpur, Coochbehar, Jalpaiguri, Birbhum, and Darjeeling.
