In such a situation, the question arises as to how the investigating agencies control the objectionable content on social media. Know in 6 points how the investigating agency finds out…

  1. First of all, the investigating agency tries to understand on which social media platform objectionable material such as pictures, videos or audio messages has been circulated. The investigating agency starts it with the statement of the accused. After the first arrest, the agency proceeds with the process by interrogating the accused and relying on his disclosures.
  2. The users from whom that objectionable material was shared on social media are traced. After this, the headquarters of that social media company is contacted. There are two ways of this. First is emergency and second is routine. Such cases come up in emergency. For example, the security of the country, the life of a person is difficult or the child is being abused or harassed. In such cases, the concerned social media company is asked to take action.
  3. In routine cases, the agency detects the IP address of the device and takes action through which the content has gone viral. If you understand the way of reducing the investigating agency with the case of Punjab, then it is an emergency-like situation. In such a situation, the investigating agency will tell the social media company how dangerous the objectionable content is going viral.
  4. If the social media company agrees to the request of the investigating agency, it either removes that content from its platform or deletes it completely. The Information Technology Rules 2021 states that in such circumstances the victim is free to approach the grievance redressal officer of any social media platform. Under this rule, it is mandatory for all the social media platforms that are active in the country, to deploy Grievance Redressal Officers.

In such a case, it is mandatory to register a case within 24 hours and it is mandatory to take action within 15 days. In this way also your problem can be conveyed to them.
  6. It is more difficult to trace the accused on WhatsApp than on Facebook and Twitter, says Gurucharan Singh.
