Punjab finance minister Manpreet Singh Badal has complained to the state police cyber cell in SAS Nagar (Mohali) and sought investigation into fake profiles in his name on social media website Facebook. His staff also released details of his real FB page.
“There were 6-7 fake profiles. People were using their own email IDs for these social media accounts, but with Manpreet Badal’s photographs,” said Jasvir Dhillon, officer on special duty to the minister.
“One such person who created a fake Facebook ID of the minister posted a message seeking funds for ‘cancer treatment’ of a young girl. A complaint was sent to the cyber cell on Tuesday,” Dhillon added.
