Police probing fake Facebook account of Tripura Governor

By IANS

Agartala, Apr 21, 2017 : The Tripura Police has launched a probe into the opening of a fake Facebook account in the name of state Governor Tathagata Roy, a police official said here on Thursday.

"Raj Bhavan officials filed a case here with the police on late Wednesday. Police began inquiry under the Information Technology Act in connection with the fake Facebook account in the name of Governor Tathagata Roy," a police official said.

He said: "The Tripura Police has a wing of cyber crime. We believe that we will soon get a breakthrough into the offence."

Police found that many concocted postings were made on the bogus Facebook account urging people to apply for government jobs against payment.

"A Professor of Calcutta University on Wednesday first informed about the fake Facebook account of the Governor. Then the Governor asked the Raj Bhavan officials to file a case in this regard," a Raj Bhavan official said, adding that the Governor was well-conversant with social media platforms.

Earlier in 2014 and 2016, a fake Facebook account was opened in the name of Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.
