Twitter India Managing Director has been booked in another case registered by the Uttar Pradesh police, this time over the social media platform putting up a distorted map of India. The police in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district have lodged an FIR against Twitter India MD Manish Maheshwari and News Partnerships Head Amrita Tripathi, both named as accused and booked under Indian Penal Code section 505 (2) (public mischief). The map in question, which appeared on the career section of Twitter website under the header 'Tweep Life', had shown the Union Territories of Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir outside India, triggering outrage on social media. Twitter removed that map on Monday evening.
