NCPCR summons Facebook official over Rahul Gandhi's Instagram post


New Delhi: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has issued a summons to Facebook India officials seeking details of the action taken against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for violating norms.
NCPCR asked India's trust and safety head Satya Yadav to appear before it at 5pm on August 17 virtually and furnish information that what action has been taken against Gandhi for posting a video on his Instagram account revealing the identity of the family of the nine-year-old girl allegedly raped and murdered in southwest Delhi.
On Friday, the child rights body directed Facebook to take action against Gandhi in the matter citing that he violated the provisions of the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act, 2012, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The body also sought removal of the video from the platform.
Earlier, NCPCR had also written to Twitter and asked it to take action against Gandhi for posting the family's photo on twitter, following which, his account had been suspended along with many other Congress leaders for sharing the same tweet.
The party’s official handle was also barred from posting and Congress called it an attack on democracy and blamed twitter for acting under BJP government's pressure.
