Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 3: Police have traced and identified dozens of fake account handles who were involved in series of “online crimes” including impersonating, forgery after creating fake accounts in the name of senior officers.
It also said that strict action that includes three year jail term under Indian Penal Code (IPC) was in offing for those involved in the cyber-crimes.
The cyber cell’s statement comes close on the heels of government spokesman Rohit Kansal’s tweet on Friday morning that a similar account to that of his official twitter handle was formed on social media by some people and they were spreading fake messages.
Kansal has urged people to stop fakes at this crucial stage of pandemic outbreak that has already claimed two lives in Kashmir and targeted nearly hundred people so far in J&K.
“Identifying fake social media accounts and handles wasn’t a cake walk. It is a difficult task and takes some time. We have already identified dozens of fake social media account handlers. Some of them have been called by us while many are not cooperating fully in the wake of Covid-19.” , a senior police officer said.
Three type of people have been identified involved in social crimes that includes impersonation—a person impersonating as a J&K government official and spreading wrong information to cheat others. Second category of people involved in online crime is those who put across fake information through fake orders as seen recently.
For this (spreading fake information), section 505 IPC applies which also includes three year imprisonment. There is a third category that is involved in forgery where in forged documents are made and circulated on social media.
Seven FIRs have already been lodged against the people involved in various online crimes.
