JNU row: Delhi Police begins probe into ‘Hafiz Saeed’ Twitter handle

New Delhi: Delhi Police on Sunday initiated a probe into the now-defunct Twitter handle in name of Lashkar-e-Tayyaba chief Hafeez Saeed, on which a message was posted in support of the JNU student stir that prompted it to issue an alert.

Read: Hafiz Saeed supported JNU event, says Rajnath Singh “We got to know that the Twitter handle has been deleted. We have initiated a probe into the matter, starting with tracking the handler, who can also be charged with sedition in view of the contents posted,” a senior officer said.


Special commissioner of police (operations) Sundari Nanda, who monitors Delhi Police’s Twitter handles, said, “When the tweet was brought to our notice, we issued the alert based on its content which was found to be anti-national. We checked the particular Twitter handle and most of its tweets and activities were found to be anti-national. No matter who the handler was, the content was threatening,” she said.

The alert was issued by one of Delhi Police’s official twitter handles on Friday. The handle — #HafeezSaeedJUD, says, “We request our Pakistani brothers to trend #SupportJNU for our pro-Pakistani JNUite brothers.”
