Kendrapara: It seem as if the Kendrapara District Collector, Samarth Verma, too is not spared of the scourge of cyber crimes on social media after a Facebook account in his name rang an alarm in his head.
The chaos and confusion happened due to a fraudster who had created Verma’s fake Facebook ID.
The matter came to light after screenshots of the fake account surfaced over social media platforms and several other acquaintances of the officer alerted him about the same.
Verma immediately filed a complaint with the police and an FIR was registered.
The District Collector also held a meeting with the SP and urged him to take immediate actions regarding the issue.
While a probe into the same is underway, it is expected that the accused fraudster will be traced soon, sources said.
