A sensational case of asking for money from friends and acquaintances by creating fake Facebook ID of Ujjain SP surfaced after a fraudster created fake Facebook profile of Ujjain SP Manoj Kumar Singh

The fraudster made a demand of Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000 using Facebook messenger from Singh’s friends and acquaintances. He came to know only after the friends informed and he immediately delete the fake Facebook profile. The case is being investigated by the cyber police.
