Fake FB account: Lawyers’ stir continues

Bhubaneswar: Members of Bhubaneswar Bar Association continued their stir on Thursday demanding immediate action against a person for allegedly creating a fake Facebook account of a lady advocate here and threatening her with dire consequences for taking up a matrimonial case against him.

Secretary of the association Anil Satpathy said after the advocate took up the matrimonial case of a woman, she received threat calls from the client’s husband. Later, she learnt that a fake Facebook account has been created in her name and objectionable pictures and posts have been made.

The advocate said though the matter has been reported to Badagada police station, no action has been taken so far.

Satpathy said Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi came to the agitation spot and assured that immediate action would be taken. To deactivate the Facebook account, police have reportedly made request to the social media website’s management in the US which could take a couple of days.
