NEW DELHI: The ministry of electronics and IT stated in a notice made public on Friday that social media platforms must remove information that encourages, glorifies, or justifies the terrible murder of people in Udaipur.

Through this notice, you are "directed to forthwith ensure that as part of your obligation of due diligence, safety and trust, you proactively and immediately remove any and all content, whether in the form of a text message, audio, video, photo, or any other form, that seems to encourage/glorify/justify this murder and killing" the notice dated June 29 said.
