Razorpay shared donor data with police: Fact-checking site Alt News

Alt News co-founder Mohammad Zubair has been arrested by Delhi Police.

New Delhi:

Fact-checking website Alt News on Tuesday alleged that payment gateway Razorpay had shared its donor data without informing the police.

In a statement, Razorpay, without mentioning Alt News’s specific allegation, said that it was mandatory under the provisions of the law to comply with the written orders of the legal authorities.

Following a request from the police, Razorpay had deactivated Alt News’s account on its donation platform and later reactivated it.

Alt News said that the charity platform had told them that their account had been reactivated “after getting some clarity”.

“They haven’t clarified what this clarity is,” the fact-checking website said.

It alleged that Razorpay had handed over the donor data of Alt News to the police.

“This was done without informing us or without any preliminary inquiry into the violation on the part of Alt News,” it said.

Delhi Police is probing the donations received by Alt News and has arrested its co-founder Mohammad Zubair.

Razorpay did not mention the allegations leveled by Alt News and said that it was mandatory to comply with the requirements of the law.

The fintech platform said, “We have received a written order from the legal authorities under Section 91 of the CrPC (Criminal Procedure Code) and we are mandated to comply with the provisions of Indian law.”

“We will continue to maintain the highest standard of data protection, protect our customers at all times and continue to comply with the laws and regulations of India,” Razorpay said.

Alt News reiterated that only Indian bank accounts could donate to it and foreign credit cards were never enabled in the Razorpay back-end.

“Therefore, the allegations of Alt News receiving funds from foreign sources from which we cannot receive donations are false,” it said.

Alt News said, “As we explore alternatives, we will continue with Razorpay as a donation platform.”
