Expressing strong displeasure at displaying content related to sex determination by search engines Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, the Supreme Court Tuesday called on the Centre to come up with a memorandum to stop the “abuse”.
“Can these search engines continue to violate the law? Is there nothing that can be done to completely stop them? Google, Microsoft, Yahoo can’t continue doing illegal activity in the name of being an intermediary,” a bench led by Justice Dipak Misra asked Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar.

Kumar said the Union of India would convene a meeting with technical experts of these search engines, along with experts from the Department of Technology, within 10 days to find a solution.
The court urged the government to prepare a memorandum outlining the unacceptability of content that violates Indian laws against pre-natal sex determination and female foeticide.
