Twitter Statement on ‘Toolkit’ Case Enquiry Called ‘Mendacious’ by Delhi Police in Strongly-Worded Counter

The Delhi Police on Thursday said the statements by Twitter on the ongoing inquiry in the ‘toolkit’ case were mendacious and designed to impede the lawful search. The strongly-worded information by the Delhi Police came after Twitter on Thursday called the visit by Delhi Police to its offices a form of “intimidation” and said it was concerned about its employees and the potential threat to freedom of expression.

An official statement issued by Delhi Police Public Relation Officer Chinmoy Biswal said, “Prima facie, these statements are not only mendacious but designed to impede a lawful inquiry by a private enterprise. Twitter Inc. has taken upon itself, in the garb of terms of service, to adjudicate the truth or otherwise of documents in public

space.” According to the police statement, Twitter is purporting to be both investigating authority and adjudicating authority but has no legal sanction to be either. The only legal entity to investigate is the police and judge in the courts; the statement said, The Delhi Police said that it has registered a preliminary inquiry in the ‘toolkit’ case at the instance of a complaint filed by the representative of the Indian National Congress.

“Hence, the efforts by Twitter Inc. that portray that this as an FIR filed at the behest of the Government of India is wholly and completely incorrect,” it stated. It is further said that Twitter’s statements are devised to seek “dubious sympathy” when they refuse to comply with the law of the land and claim to have material evidence but refuse to share it with the legal authority.
