A class 10th student created Uttar Pradesh DGP's fake Twitter handle and then instructed SSP Gorakhapur to expedite a case.

The boy said that a man from Maharajganj, named Sadiq Ansari had taken a sum of Rs. 45,000 from his brother, promising him a job in Dubai but later turned his back. He said that his family visited the Gulharia Bazaar police station and lodged a complaint but no action was taken.

The incident came to light over a month ago when the DGP office reported the matter to the Hazratganj police and subsequently a case was registered.

The case was assigned to the cyber cell, which found that the Twitter handle, in the name 'OP Singh' and displaying the DGP's photo, was being operated from a phone in Maharajganj police station area of Gorakhpur. The cyber cell worked on the case further and tracked the boy behind the cyber fraud.

On being questioned, the boy said that he got the idea from another boy of his village and then created the Twitter handle using his friend's phone, said cyber cell inspector Arun Kumar Singh.

However, the boy and one of his friends involved were detained and let off with a stern warning at the behest of the DGP.
