Special police teams of Delhi Police reached the office of Twitter India in the national capital Delhi and Gurugram on Monday evening. It is believed that team officials are raiding Twitter offices in the toolkit case. The raids are going on in offices located at Lado Sarai and Gurugram in Delhi. A few days ago, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) accused the Congress of criticizing the Modi government through a toolkit. After this, the Congress had filed a case with the police in Delhi and Chhattisgarh, calling these toolkits documents as fake. At the same time, Twitter had tagged the tweet made by BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra regarding the toolkit, describing it as the manipulated media.
Before raiding the offices of Delhi and Gurugram, the Special Cell of Delhi Police today sent a notice to Twitter India regarding the manipulated media. In the notice, the reason behind telling the tweet related to Twitter was manipulated media. On the other hand, after describing the tweet as being manipulated, the central government has also raised strong objection with Twitter. The government recently said on Twitter that it should remove the tag as the matter is pending with law enforcement agencies. The government categorically stated that the social media platform cannot pass judgment even when the investigation of the case continues. The government had asked Twitter not to interfere in the investigation process.
A team of Delhi Police special cell is carrying out a search at the Twitter India office in Delhi. Details awaited.
