At a time when restlessness prevails in and around the region, following the attack on two youths by a mob in Karbi Anglong pertaining to the circulation of child abductor rumours over social media, police have detected a fake Facebook account of Guwahati Police Commissioner Hiren Chandra Nath.
The commissioner has ordered an investigation into the matter.
On Monday, Assam Police spokesperson said that a Facebook account in the name of ‘Hiren Chandra Nath’ has been created by unknown person with some photographs of the Commissioner in uniform.
Nath said, “I do not have any other social media account except Whatsapp. This particular account has been created by someone with some intention, which I do not know”.
“I have asked my officials to see the matter and take necessary steps. We will take action,” he added.
