The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has summoned Twitter India and Delhi Police officials over alleged videos of child pornography and rape being shared on the social media platform. DCW itself took notice of several alleged tweets displaying child pornography on social media platform Twitter.
“Child pornography videos were shared on Twitter and sold for Rs 20. Twitter is yet to remove them and file more complaints about it. We have called the head of Twitter India and sought a report. We have also called the Delhi Police. Demanding immediate action, DCW chief Swati Maliwal told ANI.
The DCW said the tweets clearly showed videos and photographs of sexual acts involving children.
In a letter to Twitter India and the Delhi Police, the commission said, “Some of the Twitter accounts involved in these criminal activities appear to be running a racket in which they demand money from other users for providing obscene and rape videos of children and women on the social media platform,” the DCW said.
The commission claimed that there are hundreds of offensive videos on social media platforms that openly display child pornography and rape videos of women and children.
DCW said that it is very sad that such illegal acts of sexually exploiting children and young women are being openly publicized through the social media platform Twitter.
The commission said it wants to explore measures to prevent the spread of such “dirty and overtly criminal acts” through Twitter, as well as the systems in place on the platform for immediate reporting to law enforcement agencies.
“You are therefore hereby summoned to appear before the Commission for the purpose stated above on September 26. If you fail to comply with this order without lawful excuse, you shall be liable to the consequences of non-appearance as prescribed in law,” it said. DCW.
