Mr Modi’s photos was hanged in the giant search network alongside images of different terrorists, murderers and dictators. Besides, that list also includes faces of such world-widely known leaders as George Bush and Muammar Gaddafi, both former political chiefs of US and Libya respectively.

This search also includes such prominent Indians as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal together with lawyer Ram Jethmalani and runaway criminal don Dawood Ibrahim. Besides, photos of famous Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt also appears there due to fatal Mumbai explosions in 1993 after which he was jailed.

Google executives stated on Wednesday night that those results trouble the company and that such incidents weren’t reflective of Google’s opinion. They also added that from time to time images are being described incorrectly, so the response to some queries can be really surprising. However, it was stated that the company was working hard to improve algorithms of its search system to omit such misunderstandings.

Mr Modi’s image had been published by a British daily with erroneous metadata, so due to that fact the incidents had been happening.

As a consequence, Google made an official excuse to the Indian PM after a lot of Indian politicians and spokesmen had expressed their anxiety about that extraordinary situation.
