Social media major Twitter, on Wednesday, said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi violated their policy with a tweet revealing the identity of the kin of a rape victim. 

Twitter has informed the Delhi court that the serious violation led to the locking of the account. 

While hearing the petition which seeks direction to National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and police to take action against Gandhi for his tweet, it has suspended the account. 

The PIL has been filed by social activist Makarand Suresh Mhadlekar in Delhi High Court seeking action against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for disclosing the identity of the 9-year-old rape victim and her family on Twitter.

Last week, the social media giant had suspended Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter handle after he posted a photograph showing the kin of the 9-year-old Dalit girl who was allegedly raped in Delhi. “Shri @RahulGandhi’s Twitter account has been temporarily suspended & due process is being followed for its restoration,” the Congress party said in a tweet.
