Vadodara: The cybercrime sleuths caught a man from Delhi for allegedly creating a face Facebook account of city police commissioner Shamsher Singh.
“He was tracked down on the basis of the fake FB account he had started. Search for the other persons involved in the crime is still on,” said a police official.
Singh had on Saturday kept a post on FB account stating that someone had created a fake FB account in his name by using his photograph.
Singh had requested everyone to not accept friend request from that account.
Singh is another prominent person from the city to have been targeted by the cyber frauds after Gujarat assembly speaker, Rajendra Trivedi.
The crime branch some days ago had arrested two men from Haryana for making bogus FB page of Trivedi. The accused duo had demanded money from FB users by posing as Trivedi or his supporter.
The frauds had also targeted Congress leader Narendra Ravat and BJP Akota MLA Seema Mohile by making bogus social media accounts in their name.
“It’s an organized gang that is making such bogus accounts of prominent persons and siphoning money from their friends or acquaintances,” the police said.
