NCPCR summons Twitter for not filing action report on Kamra's 'doctored' video
New Delhi, May 17: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has issued notice to Twitter India's communications director on Wednesday for failing to submit a report on the action taken against comedian Kunal Kamra, who had allegedly posted a "doctored" video of a boy singing a patriotic song for Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Germany visit earlier this month.
The country's apex child rights body, on May 5, had sought action against Kamra for tweeting the "doctored" video. The Commission has now asked the Director, Twitter Communications India, to appear on Wednesday with the details of the action taken report.
"A letter in this regard was sent to your good offices dated 05.05.2022 calling for an ATR (action taken report) in the instant complaint within 7 days or receipt of the letter. "However, no such ATR has been yet received by the Commission," the NCPCR said in the letter sent on Tuesday.
Kamra had shared the purported video of Modi's interaction in Germany with the child but he replaced the song that the boy sang -- 'Janmabhoomi Bharat' -- with "Mehengayi daayan khaaye jaat hain", a Bollywood song about price rise. PTI
