City police summon Twitter India head


The city police have summoned the head of Twitter India to present himself before them on Monday with all the details they had requisitioned from the company about the pro-IS twitter handle @ShamiWitness.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Abhishek Goyal, investigating officer in the case against Mehdi Masroor Biswas, alleged owner of the Twitter account, has summoned the company head under Section 91 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Mr. Goyal told The Hindu that they had requisitioned the information three days ago. “We had no other option as Twitter India has not responded and we had to summon them to expedite the process,” the officer said.

He, however, refused to divulge details of the information they had sought from Twitter India.
