Facebook asked to remove anti-Mamata cartoons

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Apr 18: After Mamata's toon row, West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) wrote to the social networking site, Facebook, asking it to remove pictures mocking Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The investigative agency has also asked for the IP address of the computer from which the pictures were uploaded on the internet. However, the pictures don't include the one that was uploaded by the Jadavpur University Professor, Ambikesh Mahapatra. Kolkata Police arrested him last week for circulating the cartoons on the internet.

After a complaint filed by a resident of Kolkata who found the pictures of Mamata Banerjee as offensive, the CID took over the case and decided to write to Facebook.
