persons for opening a fake Twitter account in his name and
posting "some objectionable, indecorous and intemperate
things" on the networking site.

An official spokesperson of the Ministry of New and
Renewable Energy said that the fake Twitter account has been
opened in Abdullah`s name by some unknown persons.

account nor has authorised anyone to do it on his behalf.

"A complaint in this regard has already been lodged with

"someone in his name has been posting some objectionable,
indecorous and intemperate things".
