New Delhi: Two days after Ghaziabad Police police booked Twitter, another complaint has been filed against it, it's India MD Manish Maheshwari, Bollywood actor Swara Bhaskar, journalist Arfa Khanum Sherwani and others for giving communal colour without fact checking the authenticity of an incident.

He said that the these users have lakhs of followers on Twitter and knowing the impact that their tweets have on the society, "they gave communal colour to the incident without fact checking the truthfulness of the incident".

"The concerned tweets were floated across the social media with the motive of hampering harmony and peace amongst the religious groups," the advocate said.

Accusing Twitter, Twitter India and its MD, Acharya said, "Twitter Inc, Twitter India, its MD Maheshwari did not take any action to remove these false tweets knowing the fact that the incident didn't have any communal angle.

Also, it did not filter these tweets
