Not only vandalism on Nehru’s Wiki page, but the same IP is involved updating about pornography since 2012.

Another notorious vandalism was done on the same Wiki page from IP Address 49.32.0.237 on July 01, 2015 at 06:02AM of UTC time which is 11:32AM by Indian Time. The IP address 49.32.0.237 is assigned to the Reliance Jio INFOCOM service.

It should be known that the NIC office is accessible by Govt officials only. So there is no doubt that this vandalism that also attracts serious cyber crime was done by none other but Indian Govt officials.

Earlier, Congress alleged that the vandalism of Nehru’s Wikipedia page was done from NIC office and sought clarification from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

All the notorious vandalism was reverted by Wikipedia Senior Editors with immediate effect. It is to be mentioned that to create or update any content on Wikipedia – users need to provide valid and reliable citation. Any content creation without any valid and reliable citation is against Wikipedia’s rules and the contents get deleted by the Wikipedia Senior editors team.

    There’s a smaller fuss on wikipedia about the vandalism on Irom Sharmila Chanu’s page. And as you point out in your last sentence if you wanted vandalism to remain the simplest way is to bribe one of the senior wiki editors and choose a less well known page.
