The Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has carried out a notice against Congress President Rahul Gandhi and the social networking website, Twitter, for “disclosing” the identity of two minors who were assaulted brutally in Maharashtra’s Jalgaon district.

Amol Jadhav, a Mumbai resident from Chira Bazar, filed a complaint against Congress President for the same. Followed by the complaint, the commission has sought a revert from Rahul Gandhi and Twitter as to why action shouldn’t be taken against them.

Congress President and Twitter can be booked under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 for disclosing the identity of the minors. The commission had given a 10-day time span to both the parties for their explanations.

Earlier, a video was circulating on social media where two Dalit boys were brutally assaulted by the people for swimming in the well which belonged to a farmer in Jalgaon district of Maharashtra. This action was widely criticised all over social media and news channels.
