The development came in light of Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi, appearing for CCI, requesting for a short accommodation before the Bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh.
Senior Counsel Harish Salve, representing WhatsApp, did not object to the adjournment sought, upon condition that CCI grants further time to the messaging platform to reply to the notice issued by the CCI.
