new Delhi. The Supreme Court on Friday issued a notice to the Central Government on a petition to ban the ‘app’. A division bench of Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and Justice Hrishikesh Rai issued notices to Zoom Video Communications, the central government and the company running the ‘Jum’ app, on Harsh Chugh’s petition. The court has given four weeks time to reply to the notice.
The petitioner has requested to restrict the zoom app citing the right to privacy. The petition has demanded that the apex court direct the government to enact a proper law on the use of zoom at the government and personal levels.
The petition said that the use of this app could threaten national security. Apart from this, different types of cyber crimes can also be promoted through this app. There is a risk of cyber crime due to frequent use of the zoom app, so the Central Government should be instructed to conduct a detailed technical study regarding its use, so that the security and privacy threats arising from it can be detected.
