In a major sting operation by online media house, Cobrapost, it is found that Paytm mobile-app utility payment company shared personal data of its users to a political party on the request from PMO during stone throwing protests in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Cobrapost writes that “the senior vice president of the mobile-app utility payment company candidly admitted his association with the top brass of both the RSS and the BJP.”
The website claimed that while referring to “the stone pelting in Kashmir last year, Ajay Shekhar said, “Jab JK mein band huye the na pathar … toh humari personally PMO se phone aya tha kaha gaya tha ki data de do ho sakta hai ki Paytm user hon.
“When the stone-pelting stopped there in J&K, I personally got a phone call from the PMO. They told us to give them data saying maybe some of the stone-pelters are Paytm users,” Shekhar allegedly told the under cover journalist.
However, The Kashmir Walla couldn’t verify the authenticity of the video.
