British Members of Parliament have called on the UK government to investigate disturbing evidence of election-related activities of companies linked to data mining firm SCL Group in countries like India.

The cross-party House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee, which had conducted an investigation into ‘Disinformation and Fake News’ in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal earlier this year, said in an interim report that it is concerned about the company’s parent group SCL-linked companies allegedly undermining democracies in many countries by the “active manipulation” of facts and events.

The SCL Group, a private British behavioural research and strategic communication company, announced its closure in May this year in the wake of the data breach scandal.
