Taking suo moto cognizance of several profiles on Twitter which have been sharing pornographic content, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Twitter India MD to ensure that all such content is removed within a week.
The Commission has also written to the Delhi Police Commissioner to investigate the matter and take appropriate action.
