Facebook issues notice to Rahul Gandhi, asks him to remove post 'expeditiously'

Facebook has sought exemption from appearing in person, which NCPCR has granted, but the apex child rights body will issue an order on this.

 

New Delhi: Facebook issued a notice to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday, in a complaint regarding a video posted on Instagram where the parents' identity of a minor victim had been disclosed.

 

The notice accessed by ANI reads, "According to National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR)'s August 10, 2021 notice post you (Rahul Gandhi) uploaded through your Instagram account. It is unlawful under section 74 of Juvenile Justice Act 2015, section 23 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and section 288A of the Indian penal code (IPC) in accordance with NCPCR as notice you are requested to remove this post expeditiously."

 

Facebook has sought exemption from appearing in person, which NCPCR has granted, but the apex child rights body will issue an order on this.

 

Priyank Kanoongo, the chairperson of NCPCR, said, "Facebook has given us a reply. It stated that they have issued a notice to Rahul Gandhi and have asked to remove the post immediately."

 

"After seeing every aspect such as the IT Act, POCSO, Juvenile Justice and CPCR, NCPCR will issue an order in a maximum time period of two days," said Kanoongo.

 

Before this, the apex child rights body wrote to Twitter asking it to take action against Rahul Gandhi for posting it on social media platforms.

 

Earlier, Twitter had temporarily locked Rahul Gandhi's account. Over this, Rahul Gandhi alleged that the microblogging site is a "biased platform" and follows the government's directions.

 

On August 1, a nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped and killed by a priest and three crematorium employees near the Delhi Cantonment in southwest Delhi.

 

Delhi Police registered a case against four accused based on the statement of the minor's mother, who alleged that her daughter was raped, murdered and cremated without their consent on Sunday.

 

The matter is under active consideration.
