India Bole: IT ministry asks Facebook to share information on data leak

India Bole: The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has written a letter to Facebook seeking information over the issue of data leak from the platform of the social media giant. This comes in the wake of reports that Cambridge Analytica had used Facebook users' data to "influence" election results in several countries. In the letter, the ministry posted a series of questions to Facebook, like "Whether personal data of Indian voters and users has been compromised by CA?" and "Whether Facebook or its related or downstream agencies utilizing Facebook’s data have previously been engaged by any entities to manipulate the Indian electoral process?"
