The Delhi High Court today declined to entertain a plea which alleged that telecom services were disrupted in various parts of the national capital during the anti-citizenship law protests in violation of rules.

The ASG further said no rules were violated in the issuance of the direction for the prohibition of telecom services as contended by the petitioner.The court, while declining to entertain the matter, said the petitioner can file a suit for damages if it has suffered any loss due to the disruption.
