NEW DELHI:  Political cartoonist Manjul received an e-mail from Twitter saying the Centre had told the micro-blogging site that the content on his Twitter page violated the laws of the country. 

The cartoonist posted the e-mail on his Twitter page. "In the interest of transparency, we are writing to inform you that Twitter has received a request from Indian law enforcement regarding your Twitter account, @Manjultoons, that claims the following content violates the law(s) of India," the e-mail shared by the cartoonist said. 

"We understand that receiving this type of notice can be an unsettling experience.

This may include seeking legal counsel and challenging the request in court...," Twitter wrote in the e-mail.
