After one its employees was arrested for allegedly being the handler of the pro-Islamic State (IS) twitter account, ITC Ltd today said it is extending full cooperation with the investigating agencies.

“An employee has been arrested by Bengaluru Police in connection with an allegedly objectionable social media activity carried out under a pseudonym.

“We informed Bengaluru Police about his employment status as soon as we found media reports on this issue, and have extended every co-operation with the investigation process,” an ITC Ltd spokesperson said in a statement.

Bengaluru-based engineer Mehdi Masroor Biswas was arrested by police who claims he has “confessed” of handling the pro-jihad tweeter “@ShamiWitness”.

ITC did not give details of his employment status.

Biswas was a manufacturing executive with ITC.
