The Delhi Police Special Cell on Monday visited the office of Twitter in the national capital in connection with a probe over the alleged ‘ Congress toolkit ’.

While confirming the presence of Special Cell officers at Twitter’s office in Lado Sarai, a source said that the officials currently did not have a warrant for a search.

Last week, the filed a police complaint   against BJP leaders after party spokesperson Sambit Patra  accused the Opposition party of preparing a “toolkit” to destroy the image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi..

A top Delhi police official told The Hindu that they had asked Twitter in India to join the investigation in the “toolkit case” since the popular social media site had tagged Mr. Patra’s tweet as “manipulated media”.

“Our contention is that since they have tagged it as ‘manipulated media’, they know something about the case. We have been asking Twitter in India to join the investigation, but they asked us to contact their parent company in the United States,” the official said.
