Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) chief coordinator Seeman’s Twitter account was withheld by the social media company after the Government of India (GoI) reportedly made an official request. According to a source close to Mr. Seeman, Twitter said the account had been withheld because it was considered to have violated Information Technology Act, 2000. “We just got a notification from Twitter,” said the source, adding that it was not clear which of the tweets made by the account were found to have violated the law. The last tweet by Mr. Seeman criticised the manner in which the wrestlers protesting against the Wrestling Federation of India chief and BJP MP, Brij Bushan Singh were manhandled by the Delhi Police.
