NCPCR asks Delhi Police to register FIR against Twitter for violation of POCSO Act

National Commission For Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked Delhi Police to register an FIR against Twitter. NCPCR has also asked centre to stop access of children to Twitter till the platform is safe for children and till Twitter does not start reporting complaints of child sexual violence to Indian authorities.

NCPCR Chairperson Priyank Kanoongo said that Twitter has links to whatsapp groups where child sexual abuse material is available and is being sold. He added that Twitter also has links where toolkits to deepweb and Darkweb are available. He said in an investigation of a complaint, NCPCR has found that rape threats of a small child were made when the child’s photograph was uploaded on the platform.

Mr Kanoongo said that NCPCR has observed that Twitter has given NCPCR false information regarding the relationship between Twitter India and Twitter America in the context of control over content. He said that Twitter has violated POCSO Act and IPC.
