Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Tuesday ordered the special task force (STF) of the state’s police to investigate the creation of a fake profile of hers on the social networking website Orkut.
“We have asked the STF to put its cyber crime sleuths to work to get to the root of the mischievous creation of the chief minister’s profile on Orkut,” state home secretary Javeed Ahmad told scribes here Tuesday.
The profile was discovered Aug 25. After getting the news, Mayawati promptly summoned her top officials, who thereafter directed the STF to probe the whole affair.
According to an official of the chief minister’s secretariat, “besides carrying her brief biographical account, the site was loaded with objectionable matter about the chief minister and that too in highly unparliamentary language.
“We will get to the root of the issue and see that those guilty of indulging in this slander campaign by using the Internet are brought to book,” he said.
Names of her political mentor, the late Kanshi Ram and some top bureaucrats of the state have also been mentioned with derogatory remarks about them.
