The government on Thursday informed the Supreme Court that it had constituted a Special Committee to examine the need to continue internet speed restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir as directed by the court.

Responding to a plea by the Foundation for Media Professionals, which demanded contempt proceedings for non-compliance, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta informed the court that a committee had been formed and had taken some decisions. He sought a week’s time to place them on record.
