The banned accounts include accounts of the Pakistani Embassy in UN, Turkey, Iran and Egypt. “Diminishing space for plurality of voices & access to info in India is extremely alarming,” the tweet added.

Meanwhile, the Twitter handles of journalists, including The News and Geo News reporter in London, Murtaza Ali Shah and CJ Werleman have also been withheld by the company under India’s Information Technology Act, 2000, Geo News reported.
