In his petition, Syed Peerzada Suheel Ahmed, 23, a resident of Electronics City, claimed the communication blackout imposed by the central government since August 4 have left many like him without any means to confirm his family's safety. The clampdown has violated his fundamental rights guaranteed under Articles 14, 19(1) (a) and 21 of the Constitution, Syed maintained.

According to Syed, his father suffers from diabetes, his mother from thyroid and grandmother from several old-age related issues.
