Goa Power Minister’s office files complaint against netizen against fake news on FB about his health

The office of Goa Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar currently in coma today filed a police complaint against a netizen for allegedly posting fake news about his health, the police said in a report to media.

The complaint was filed with the Old Goa police station by the minister’s PA Vishnu Tivrekar.

Pandurang Madkaikar has been hospitalised in Mumbai since June 5 this year, after he suffered a stroke.

The purported post was posted on Facebook on August 18 from the profile which states that the user is a girl.

Old Goa police inspector Sudesh Velip said the complaint would be forwarded to the headquarters as the girl, against whom the complaint is filed, is not a resident of the area that falls under his jurisdiction.

The girl hails from Bicholim taluka, he said.
