Fake Twitter account created in name of LG Manoj Sinha, police registers FIR


SRINAGAR August 9: Police on Sunday said that a fake Twitter handle has been created in the number of Lieutenant Governor J&K Manoj Sinha.

An official of cyber police told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS) that a fake twitter handle has been created in the name of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. “The account seems to have been created to spread false information and mislead the masses,” the official said.

Cyber police has taken cognizance and registered an FIR.

Manoj Sinha took over the LG of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.  Sinha, 61, has been actively involved in working for the backward villages of eastern Uttar Pradesh. His political career began in 1982 when he was elected the president of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) Students Union. He was elected to the Lok Sabha for the first time in 1996 and repeated the term in 1999.

From 1989 to 1996, Sinha remained a member of the BJP national council. He was elected to the Lower House for a third term in national politics when the BJP swept the Lok Sabha elections in 2014.

He was former Minister of State for Railways and later held an independent charge of the Ministry of Communication. (KINS)
