In a late night development, Bulandshahr police set-aside Twitter India’s Managing director Manish Maheshwari underneath Section 505 (2) of IPC and Section seventy four of the IT (Amendment) Act 2008 for showing a wrong map of India on its website.
The FIR was lodged on the criticism of a neighborhood lawyer, Bulandshahr SP Santosh Kumar Singh stated to TOI
On the map, Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are identified as different countries. Prime Minister Modi recently started negotiations with JandK’s political parties, almost two years after lifting his special status under Article 370.
Twitter silently deleted the card after the vulnerability caused anger.
The error appeared under the heading “Tweep Life” in the racing section of Twitter.
This is not only another incident in a series of controversies between the US microblogging giant in India, but also the third time an incorrect map of India appeared on its platform in recent months. The Information Technology Department can send a reasonable notice of the new infringement to the company and recommend action; however, the official did not comment on this. As far as Twitter officials are concerned, they did not respond to the request, and even their representatives refused.
Maheshwari filed on June 26 a warning with the Supreme Court asking for a hearing before approving an order on an appeal by the Ghaziabad Police against the reparation granted by the Karnataka Supreme Court.
The Karnataka HC granted Maheshwari temporary legal protection on Thursday in a case related to an attack video that went viral on the microblogging platform. The HC had also ordered not to take any coercive measures against him until Tuesday.
The court had stated that if the Ghaziabad police wanted to interview Maheshwari, they could do so virtually. UP Police ordered Maheshwari on June 17 to report to Loni Border Police Station within seven days of receiving the notice so that his testimony could be recorded.
