DCW Summons Twitter India, Delhi Police Over Child Pornography And Rape Videos On Twitter

Date:

New Delhi: The Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) summoned Twitter India and Delhi Police over alleged videos of child pornography and rape being circulated across the microblogging platform.

According to reports, DCW took suo moto cognizance over several alleged tweets on the platform displaying child pornography.

DCW Chief Swati Malliwal took to Twitter and added that “Videos of child pornography were shared on Twitter and were sold for Rs 20. Twitter is yet to delete them and report it further. We have summoned the head of Twitter India and have sought a report. We have also summoned Delhi Police and have sought immediate action,”.

In its letter to Twitter India and Delhi Police, DCW added “Almost all the tweets are portraying children completely naked and many of them also depict brutal rape and other non-consensual sexual activities with children and women. Shockingly, some of these videos even depict rape with children and women while they are asleep!”.

DCW further alleged that some of the accounts appear to be engaging in criminal activities of running a racket wherein they seek money for providing pornographic content.

DCW said it is deeply distressing that such illegal acts involving sexual abuse of children and young women are being publicized openly through the social media platform Twitter.

The Commission said it wishes to ascertain the steps being taken by Twitter to prevent such “filthy and outrightly criminal acts” from being propagated through its medium as well as the systems in place in the platform to immediately report the same to law enforcement agencies.
