Congress toolkit case: Delhi Police crackdown on 'Twitter', raid notice sent

New Delhi: The Special Cell of Delhi Police raided Twitter India offices in Delhi and Gurgaon on Monday in connection with the 'Congress Toolkit' probe. It was only on Monday that delhi police sent a notice to Twitter in the Congress toolkit case. Delhi Police had questioned social media company Twitter as to what information they have based on which they are calling tweets by BJP leaders and others "manipulated media".

In a notice sent on Monday, the Special Cell of Delhi Police had also asked Twitter to share the information. Delhi Police had said that the information was important for investigation. The special cell investigating the case wants to find out the reality. Twitter has claimed to know the underlying truth, so it should clarify. Earlier, Twitter had on May 21 described a tweet by Sambit Patra on the so-called toolkit created by the Congress to target the Modi government as a manipulated media. Twitter had said, "It can label tweets that include media (videos, audio and images) that have been misleadingly altered or fabricated. Twitter was asked to remove the tag, strongly objecting to the issue by the Central government."


The Congress party had sent an email to Twitter on Wednesday (May 19, 2021) asking it to suspend the handles of several party functionaries including BJP National President JP Nadda, spokesperson Sambit Patra, Union Textiles and Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani, National General Secretary (Organisation) BL Santosh. The Congress had alleged that the document being shared as its toolkit was fake.
