Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi had last week tweeted pictures of the family of a girl who was raped and murdered in Delhi. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) took cognizance of Rahul Gandhi's tweet and Twitter took action against the Congress leader's account for violating the privacy of the minor victim.
