The Delhi Police Department has written to Google to provide information on 33 members of the two WhatsApp groups following the January 2020 violence at JNU. In response to this, Google claims that such information may be provided only by the police under the Legal Aid Agreement (MLAT) upon receipt of this letter, which is a court order.

On January 5 last year, about 100 masked men attacked Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for about four hours, injuring 36 students, teachers, and staff. The matter was referred to the Department of Crime after the FIR registration, but so far no arrests have been made.

WhatsApp refused to share details: Police have written to WhatsApp and Google asking for details of messages, photos, and videos shared by 33 students and members of two WhatsApp groups “Unity Against Left” and “RSS Friends”. WhatsApp declined to divulge the details, and Google recently sent out a response stating that the information was related to the services provided by Google, a company operating in the United States and governed by U.S. law. it is.

Assurance of data security: The company said it would keep the information secure, but would only disclose it after receiving the MLAT application letter. According to a police source, in such cases, Google is following the embassy procedures established between the requesting authority for information and the US government.

Rogatory Letter is a formal application from a foreign court seeking legal assistance to investigate a foreign institution. The MLAT is an agreement between two or more countries to collect and exchange information in an effort to enforce civil or criminal law.

Email addresses of 33 people were shared to Google: Police shared the email addresses of 33 students and two members of the WhatsApp and Google teams. According to sources, investigators should have done so because no WhatsApp team was found on the phones of students who were asked about the incident. This suggests that the suspects may have deleted their conversations. According to sources, police believe that sharing backups of Google WhatsApp messages will help the investigation.

India will retaliate strongly at the time and place of its choice if Pakistan attempts to use drones or participate in a “joint war of any kind to target Indian citizens or military property,” the defense chief Bipin Rawat warned in a statement.

Investigators are investigating whether a small explosive device used in the June 27 terrorist attack on the Jammu Air Force was fired from Pakistan or the region and whether the intent was to send a message of new power or cause damage.

We do not yet know the ultimate goal. But let them (Pakistan) do something to destroy our property and the response of our armed forces will be very different. The will of politics is there.” Our armed forces are ready, “he said, addressing an online conference here.

He added, “We must send a strong message that anything of this nature, gray zone tactics or hybrid warfare if it damages our property and affects our national security, we have the right to respond at the time and place we choose and the way we want to be held accountable.

Speaking about the end of the fire with Pakistan since February, the CDS said simply stopping the border shooting at the checkpoint was not enough.,” he said that It (Pakistan) is to use indirect means to disrupt the peace process, it is tantamount to violating the suspension agreement.

IAF had a limited number of interventions that interfered with the management and control of small drone coordinators and anti-death programs “but not yet developed. because it did not have “critical supplies” such as fighter jets, said Air Chief Marshal RKS head Badauria.

“What happened in Jammu was an act of terrorism that attempted to identify our goods (Mi-17 V5 helicopters) there. The attempt failed. Two explosives were used, one HE (a large explosive) on the environment and the other cracked, said the IAF chief.

The IAF is working closely with the DRDO on its drone programs, which have targeted powerful weapons such as lasers and will soon complete their tests. “A new type of threat.” Many projects have already been undertaken and some plans have been implemented, “he said.

General Rawat said the military must continue to adapt to new threats because subsequent attacks could be carried out with arrows, as shown in the recent Israeli-Hamas war, not with planes.
