New Delhi | A case has been registered in Delhi against Twitter for spreading child pornography. The case was registered by the Delhi Police Cyber Cell on the instructions of the National Commission for Child Rights. This is the fourth case filed against Twitter, which has lost legal protection in the country following a dispute with the central government over a new IT law. The new case is under the IT-Poxo rules.
According to a complaint filed by the Child Rights Commission, child pornography is regularly posted on Twitter. The commission has sent two letters to the Delhi Police’s cyber cell directing the senior police officer to appear on June 29.
Earlier this month, Twitter lost protection from legal action related to what customers post. This was due to the refusal to comply with the new IT rules introduced by the central government.
