Dona Ganguly, wife of commentator and former national cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly lodged a police complaint about a fake Facebook page in her name and several pictures along with Ganguly and daughter Sana were shared by the fake account.
The police are investigating the case and stated that soon they will catch the culprit and the team is probing the matter to find out who is behind it. The IP (internet protocol) address used to create the Facebook profile has already been identified. Several photographs of the former India captain and current BCCI president with his wife and daughter Sana were posted in the fake account.
Dona Ganguly came to know about the fake account from one of the students and immediately complained to the police. As per PTI, she said- “Yes, a page using my name and Dada’s (Sourav) photos has been created on Facebook. I was informed by one of my students about this. We have complained with the police. At times people post remarks which others start thinking as ours, creating confusion which I don’t want to happen. Hopefully, police will help me close this fake account.”
Dona Ganguly’s original Facebook account has 34K followers, but the fake one has already attracted over 70,000 followers.
