Twitter tags BJP’s social media chief Amit Malviyas tweet as ‘manipulated media’

Twitter on Wednesday flagged National in-charge of BJP’s Information and Technology cell Amit Malviyas tweet as manipulated media, for spreading misleading information on the social media platform.

On November 28, Malviya had uploaded a Propaganda vs Reality video on twitter quoting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi as the most discredited opposition leader in India. In opposition to the Congress leader, Malviya claimed that the police ?did not even touch the farmer.

However, Malviyas tweet earned a lot of backlash as the fact-check website named Alt News uploaded an unedited version of the same video, which showed police raining blows at the protesting farmers near Singhu border. 

 

According to Twitters synthetic and manipulated media policy, a user must not deceptively promote synthetic or manipulated media that is likely to cause harm. Twitter also said that it may label tweets that include media (videos, audio and images) that have been deceptively altered or fabricated. While in most cases, the action would be restricted to labelling only, media that affirm all three warning boxes (posts that are synthetic or manipulated, shared in a deceptive manner, and are likely to cause harm) can be removed.

A shocking video of a man violently attacking a dog and his three neighbours with an iron rod in Delhi’s Paschim Vihar area has surfaced online. The man reportedly got angry after the dog barked at him.

The injured family members are reported to be receiving treatment. Rakshit, one of the family members, earlier said that he filed a complaint but a First Information Report (FIR) was yet to be filed. The dog has a clot in the head following the attack.

A video, which was shared by news agency ANI, shows the man heading to a home in a fit of anger in Delhi’s Paschim Vihar. He is followed by a woman and both of them are seen locked in a fight as he picks up a rod. After they fall to the ground, a disturbing standoff ensues. The woman holds on to the man’s foot as he attacks her with the rod. Later, two other men come to help her when the attacker leaves.

In the later half of the video, the man comes back to attack the family and the dog. The woman is trying to check on the dog who falls on the ground.

In the most unbelievable incident ever, four men were arrested for allegedly raping a Bengal monitor lizard in Sahyadri Tiger Reserve (STR). The reserve is spread over four districts of Satara, Sangli, Kolhapur and Ratnagiri in Maharashtra.

The gruesome incident took place at Gothane village in Ratnagiri district on March 31 when the four accused illegally entered Chandoli National Park (part of the reserve). One of the four was also carrying a gun for hunting.

The Maharashtra Forest Department checked the mobile phone of one of the accused and that’s when he learnt about the incident. The officials found the recording of the act, which showed the accused allegedly gang-raping the monitor lizard.

A forest official said the four accused were identified as Sandeep Tukaram Pawar, Mangesh Kamtekar, Akshay Kamtekar and Ramesh Ghag.

The official said, “During the investigation, the forest officials found that the accused had allegedly raped a Bengal monitor lizard. Their act was also recorded in a mobile phone of one of the accused persons. We have recovered all the related evidence from the accused and they were granted forest department custody initially, but are out on bail now. They have been asked to mark their presence before the forest officer, who is probing the case, every Monday.”
“The four accused have been booked under various sections of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972,” said field director of Sahyadri Tiger Reserve (STR), Nanasaheb Ladkat.
