According to police, a "fake account" was used by unidentified person or persons in the teenager's name. The boy stated that he does not know how to operate the social networking site.
Earlier on Wednesday, Nov 28, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers dragged the boy to police station accusing him of sending "vulgar" images and messages on their leader. Thane (Rural) unit MNS president Kundan Sankhe had claimed that the boy had made "abusive" comments about Raj Thackeray and the people of Maharashtra, including women.
Here are some questions unanswered as of yet:
- If the boy does not know how to operate Facebook, then how can it be hacked?
- If he has a Facebook account, then who hacked it?
- Is the boy being framed or is it a case of publicity stunt?
- Is this a trap by MNS who wants to grab limelight after Bal Thackeray's demise?
A senior police officer on Thursday said, "Sunil Vishwakarma is cooperating with us in the case and was allowed to go last night after initial questioning. He is nowhere involved in the case."
