A location tag of a live video on Twitter posted by national security analyst Nitin Gokhale showed Jammu and Kashmir as a part of China and Leh's Hall of Fame as a part of Jammu and Kashmir instead of the Union Territory of Ladakh.
Gokhale tweeted screenshots and tagged Twitter's support handle saying that he did this on purpose as a test. Gokhale also shared a screenshot in which Leh's Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport was identified as a part of China by the micro-blogging platform.
The analyst later tweeted, "I believe Govt agencies have escalated the matter too. Hopefully the mistake , deliberate or otherwise, will be corrected soonest."
Several irate Twitter users replied and retweeted the incident and asked Twitter India for accountability.
A user @KedarNiwasi tagged the Meity minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "Dear @rsprasad this is outrageous. @twitterIndia should be made accountable.
Another user asked Twitter to correct the mistake.
I hope it's a very silly mistake, said another Twitter user.
"@PMOIndia @AmitShahOffice sir we need to suspend @TwitterIndia in India till they time make the corrections," said Twitter user @gautam5300.
