“Notices were served around the same time when the complaint was submitted on Thursday [May 20]. The intention was to ask them to explain the complaint and share necessary reasons,” said a police officer privy to the probe.

The Delhi Police on May 24 visited micro-blogging website Twitter’s office in Delhi and Gurugram to serve them a notice following a ‘Manipulated Media’ tag on a tweet by BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra on May 18, wherein he had shared a document calling it ‘Congress Toolkit.’

On May 20, the Youth Congress submitted a complaint alleging that the document shared was fake.
