"According to a complaint received from an IAF personnel, the said page, which is illegal and unauthorised, sought donations for relief operations in Uttarakhand on July 1," said an officer. "On the said date, a moderator of the page posted a statement saying 'Team IAF FB will be making a donation towards the Uttarakhand flood relief, if you are willing to make a contribution, do transfer your desired contribution to the following bank account'."
An account number was mentioned below the said post prompting the IAF to intimate the police before the scheme could materialise. The online post has been removed from the page. Investigations pertaining to the author of the post are underway. The said post, sources in the EOW said, had also appeared on a separate Facebook page but was removed within a day. "We are yet to ascertain whether or not donations were sent to the said bank account," said the officer.
