Wednesday’s search results show how a simple search can trigger the most unexpected result. Searching for “top 10 criminals in India" on Google Images showed PM Modi among the top 10. Google apologized and clarified that the image search results were drawn from multiple news articles with images of Modi, covering the PM’s statements with regard to politicians with criminal backgrounds. The news articles do not link Modi to criminal activity, and the words just appeared in close proximity to each other. Google said that Modi came as a top search for the query “top 10 criminals in india" because a British daily had an image of Modi with erroneous metadata.

Here are the top searches for Wednesday:
