In the controversy over the ANI story on accounts from Russia, Kazakhstan and Indonesia retweeting Rahul Gandhi's tweets, Altnews.in has found  that the BJP's IT cell head Amit Malviya tweeted a screenshot of one of  the Twitter accounts taken two hours before ANI's story was published at 1.05 pm. The screenshot records the time it was taken.  That was also true of a screenshot  of another account which Malviya tweeted. Ten accounts are listed in ANI’s article. So did the evidence of these retweets get fed to ANI by the BJP?  Or did the BJP have prior knowledge of the story ANI was going to do?  Malviya began tweeting right after the ANI story was published.                               

The Hindu reports that a  journalist with the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran and a member of the RSS, Rajesh Mishra, was shot dead in Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh on Saturday. His brother was also shot at and critically injured. Several rounds were filed at him by unidentified motorbike-borne assailants. Police said suspected enmity could be the reason for the murder. Mishra worked as a block-level stringer with Dainik Jagran and was also a block in-charge of the RSS.
