New Delhi, Aug 8 (PTI) Search Engine Google Monday told the Delhi High Court that it has complied with the order to remove web links allegedly containing objectionable material against Union Minister Smriti Irani and her daughter and said the BJP leader may provide other URLs on which action will be taken.    Google's counsel told the high court that only one URL was provided to them by Irani and the same has been disabled.             Justice Mini Pushkarna issued notice and sought a reply from Irani on an application filed by Google seeking modification of the July 29 order in which the court had directed social media platforms to remove the allegations, videos, posts, tweets, re-tweets, captions, taglines along with the morphed pictures of the plaintiff and her daughter along with the underlined material with such defamatory content or anything similar thereto including recirculation on their respective platforms.               Senior advocate Arvind Nigam, representing Google, submitted that the URLs which the plaintiff wants them to remove must be provided to the intermediary which cannot be expected to monitor the material.
