Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has received a summons from the Delhi Police IFSO's Cyber Crime Unit. He is required to appear on May 1 in relation to a manipulated video of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. In the video, Shah's statement about the reservation quotas for Muslims in the state was altered to make it seem like he was advocating for the elimination of all reservations. The police have requested Reddy to bring his mobile phone, which was allegedly used to share the fake video on X. A team from the Delhi Police has traveled to Telangana to serve the notice to those who tweeted the video. The Telangana unit of the Congress party, who originally posted the video on X, will also be served notice. Earlier, Amit Malviya, the BJP IT cell chief, accused the Telangana Congress of circulating a fabricated video of Amit Shah that could incite violence. The police are currently investigating the matter and are trying to locate the source of the video. Individuals who shared the video will be questioned and served notice to participate in the investigation.

The authorities received two grievances, one from the BJP and another from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). The alleged offenses fall under Sections 153, 153A, 465, 469, and 171G of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 66C of the Information Technology (IT) Act. As per the First Information Report (FIR), the MHA's complaint stated that there are "altered videos being circulated on Facebook and Twitter." The FIR mentioned that these videos are misleading and aim to create discord among communities, potentially disrupting public peace and order. The ministry requested legal action in accordance with the law. The complaint included a report with details of the sources responsible for sharing the edited videos of the Home Minister. The controversy arose when a video surfaced on social media, allegedly showing the Home Minister implying the BJP's intention to revoke reservation provisions for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), and Other Backward Classes (OBCs).
