New Delhi: Tina Dabi, who recently topped the UPSC civil services examination, reportedly has many fake profiles and pages on Facebook.
According to the Deccan Chronicle, Tina has stated on her Facebook page that at least 35 fake profiles and pages are currently active on the social networking site in her name.
Tina, 22, said people have been misusing her name on Facebook and posting ‘obnoxious’ comments with which she has nothing to do.
“It has come to my notice that some anti-social elements have made around 35 fake Facebook profiles and pages under my name and are posting obnoxious statements posing as me. I want to clarify that none of the ridiculous statements being made under my name are my opinions,” the UPSC topper wrote on Facebook.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Tina said she found the fake profiles on Facebook 'creepy' and 'distressing'.
“It’s very creepy. I never said these things about hard work or dedication. These profiles are quoting someone else and attributing it to me. In future, they may do something worse,” she told the newspaper.
Tina has further called on her friends to report all such fake profiles and pages.
“It’s really heartbreaking for me to see that a few anti-social elements can't even allow a simple girl who has done hard work to remain in peace. I request one and all to kindly report all such fake profiles and pages made under my name as their sole purpose is just to tarnish my image,” she said.
