BY Vijayendra files complaint with cyber crime cops
A fake tweet in the name of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa’s son BY Vijayendra ‘supporting’ actress Ragini Dwivedi, who has been arrested by the CCB in the drugs case, has created a flutter among netizens. The fake tweet, disowned by Vijayendra, who is the state BJP vice-president, tried to create an impression that the BJP was supporting the actress.
The fake Twitter account was created using BY Vijayendra’s name and photo. It said: “The BJP party will stand by the star campaigner of the BJP, actress Ragini, during her difficult times. As a party vice- president, I have consulted with her and promised to give her full legal assistance.”
On Saturday, BY Vijayendra tweeted that the false message from a fake account was meant to mislead people. He stated, “A complaint has been filed with the cyber crime police that someone has maliciously created a fake account in my name on Twitter, sending false information and misleading messages. Everyone should be wary of such efforts.”
ದುರುದ್ದೇಶದಿಂದ ಟ್ವಿಟ್ಟರ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಹೆಸರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಕಲಿ ಖಾತೆ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿ, ಸುಳ್ಳು ಮಾಹಿತಿ, ತಪ್ಪು ಸಂದೇಶ ರವಾನಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ನನ್ನ ಗಮನಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದಿದ್ದು, ಇದರ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಕಾನೂನು ಪ್ರಕಾರ ಕಠಿಣ ಕ್ರಮ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವಂತೆ ಸೈಬರ್ ಕ್ರೈಮ್ ಪೊಲೀಸರಿಗೆ ದೂರು ನೀಡಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಇಂತಹ ಕೀಳು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಗಳ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಎಚ್ಚರಿಕೆಯಿಂದಿರಬೇಕು.— Vijayendra Yeddyurappa (@BYVijayendra) September 5, 2020
