Delhi govt mulls WhatsApp number to report hate messages

Feb 29, 2020 23:05 IST

The Delhi government is considering to issue a WhatsApp number on which people can complain about hate messages being circulated. The proposal comes in the wake of the communal violence that has claimed 42 lives in northeast Delhi. News agency PTI quoted sources as saying that an official will then screen all the complaints made and genuine ones will then be forwarded to the police for necessary action. Whoever is then found circulating hate messages will face action under the IT Act which includes punishment of up to three years, fine or both.
