NEW DELHI: Twitter Inc. has removed or restricted access to more than 50 posts in the past one month at the behest of the Indian government, including tweets that criticised its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian Express newspaper reported.

Other posts that were removed showed pictures and videos of a recent attack in Chhattisgarh carried out by Maoist guerrillas, the paper reported, citing disclosures made by the social media platform to the Lumen Database, which collects and analyses legal complaints and requests for removal of online materials.
