Sushan Singh Death Case 1000s of fake ids under scanner for defaming Mumbai Police
After the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput the Mumbai Police is investigating thousands of fake social media accounts that were set up.
Two FIRs have been registered against unknown persons for posting abusive comments against Mumbai Police and also for spreading fake informations on the 34-year-old actor’s death by suicide.
The fake accounts are expected to come under the scanner following the FIRs. Posts from these accounts were uploaded on social media platforms from different countries including Italy, Japan, Poland, Slovenia, Indonesia, Turkey, Thailand, Romania and France.
“The malicious campaign was run against Mumbai police just to demoralise us at a time when 84 policemen had died due to the pandemic and over 6,000 men were infected with the virus. We will reach to the culprit of this malicious campaign,” said a Mumbai police official.
“Several social media account holders are trolling the Mumbai Police commissioner on different platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and are using abusive language against him and the force. Hence an FIR has been registered against those account holders under Section 67 of IT Act,” the official added.
