According to Razdan, she had received death threats on her Instagram handle on Sunday. When she reported the account to Instagram, the photo/video sharing app dismissed the report claiming it does not violate their guidelines.
I got a death threat on @instagram via a pvt msg: “I will hang you,I will execute you”. I reported the account to @instagram. They replied that it does not violate their guidelines. Shame on you @instagram. Am deleting my account. And yes, I’m filing an FIR
