About 200 fake Twitter handles impersonating senior Army officers

The army has identified about 200 fake Twitter handles that have been impersonating senior army officers, including Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, and spreading propaganda on Jammu and Kashmir. The army with the help of the defence ministry and home ministry has reported the matter to Twitter, officials added. Twitter has shut down about 6o to 70% of these handles. Officials believe these handles to have the support of the Pakistan establishment and see this as a ‘twitter war’ started from across the border. They added that these handles came up after the Centre abrogated Article 370 that gave special status to J&K on August 5. There has been a 70 to 80% increase in such Twitter handles since over the past month, as compared to what it was in the months preceding August 5.

A man lost Rs 4 Lakh on FB to a person who pretended to be a young girl

A man from Visakhapatnam got in touch with a person on Facebook who pretended to be a young girl. After two years of friendship, the victim fell in love with the accused, who was actually a man. At some point of time the accused asked the victim for Rs 4 Lakh, saying her family was in deep financial trouble. Thinking this to be true, the victim transferred Rs 4 Lakh to the accused. After the victim transferred money, the conversations stopped. A few days later, the accused called the victim and said she had got married and moved to the United States with her husband. After some months she again contacted him and informed that her husband was torturing her. She also said that she wanted to return to India and get married to the victim. Believing this to be true, the victim deposited money to her bank account for the flight tickets. A few days after receiving the money, she again stopped speaking to him.
