NDTV has gained exclusive access to an initial report by the government on how the social media was used to spread panic among people from the North-East, living in different parts of the country. According to the report, a socio-political Pakistani group may have begun the process of doctoring images and spreading them across social networking sites like Facebook; though a few Indian groups are also suspected to have played a role. The report says pictures of earthquakes in Thailand and Tibet were morphed and circulated that triggered panic.
