Delhi Police has sent a notice to micro-blogging site Twitter over the toolkit controversy. Police said, it is enquiring into a complaint in which clarification is sought from Twitter regarding the classification of a tweet by BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra as manipulative. Earlier, Mr Patra had shared an alleged toolkit prepared by Congress to target the government. Later, Twitter had labelled it as manipulated media.
Congress had also approached Delhi Police with a complaint against BJP leaders terming the toolkit as forged.
Delhi Police said, it appears that Twitter has some information which is not known to it on the basis of which they have classified it as manipulated. It added that this information is relevant to the inquiry as the Special Cell which is conducting the enquiry wants to find out the truth. It also said Twitter which has claimed to know the underlying truth should clarify.
Meanwhile, a team of Delhi Police Special Cell is carrying out a search at the Twitter India office in Delhi.
