The court was hearing appeals filed by WhatsApp and its parent company Meta, which had challenged a single bench order that had declined to interfere in the CCI's investigation into the said policy of the online messaging platform, LiveLaw reported.
After hearing all the stakeholders, the division bench comprising Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad reserved the order in the case.
Countering his submissions, Advocate Tejas Karia, appearing for WhatsApp, said that the authority must wait for the findings of the apex court even though it has jurisdiction. If the highest authority of the country (Supreme Court) is examining the validity of the policy, then it may not be open for any authority to probe the case, he submitted, as per LiveLaw.
