While clarifying that he is not involved in the matter, Maheshwari agreed to give insights.
However, the police officials aren’t satisfied with the response and so are mulling to issue a second notice to the social media giant.
Senior Superintendent of Police of Ghaziabad Amit Pathak would question the MD if the department agrees to Twitter’s response.
Ghaziabad police has claimed that there is no communal angle to the Loni incident, and in its FIR accused The Wire, Rana Ayyub, Mohammed Zubair, Dr Shama Mohammed, Saba Naqvi, Maskoor Usmani, Salman Nizami of giving communal colour to the incident on Twitter.
