While dealing with the controversy over the Delhi Assembly committee summoning Facebook Vice-President Ajit Mohan for the spread of hate messages during the Delhi riots, a bench of Justices S K Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari, and Hrishikesh Roy said, “Entities like Facebook have to remain accountable to those who entrust them with such power.”
