Many fake accounts were created on social media in the name of Sushant’s family members and fake reports were shared with them.
- The Mumbai Police Commissioner said that the fake account was an attempt to insult the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government.
- On June 14, the body of actor Sushant was found in a flat in Bandra, which was murdered by several media channels.
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) has submitted a forensic investigation report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. According to the latest information, the cause of Sushant’s death was suicide. In the midst of all this, Mumbai police have received information that more than 60,000 fake social media accounts were opened to spread fake news of Sushant’s death.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh said the fake account was an attempt to discredit the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government. He directed the cyber cell to look into the matter and prosecute the culprits under the IT Act.
Digvijay Singh says the case should be investigated
Following the revelation, Congress leader and former chief minister Digvijay Singh tweeted on Tuesday that more than 60,000 fake accounts should be investigated to tarnish the image of the Mumbai police.
In another tweet, Digvijay said the BJP has the power to create fake accounts on social media. Can’t the BJP government take action against the creation of all such ghost accounts? I’m sure they can, all we need is a strong political will.
Counterfeit accounts have been created in countries like Italy, Japan and Thailand
The cyber unit produced a report stating that it was posted on social media platforms from countries such as Italy, Japan, France, Romania, Turkey, Thailand, Indonesia, Poland and Slovenia. An IPS officer said, ‘We have marked the post in a foreign language. It used the hashtags #advicefarasushant #sushantsinghrajput and #SSR. We are trying to gather more information about these accounts.
Police are trying to break morale
Mumbai Police Commissioner Parambir Singh said such raids tried to weaken our morale. All of this was done when 64 of our policemen died of the coronavirus and more than 6,000 were infected with coronavirus. The campaign was deliberately carried out to tarnish the image of the Mumbai police and change the direction of the investigation. Many fake accounts were created on social media, where abusive language was used on behalf of the Mumbai police. Our cyber cell is investigating in detail. Anyone found guilty of violating the law will be prosecuted under the IT Act.
