Later, the IP addresses and mobile phone number used when registering the alleged profile were obtained. After a technical investigation, the identity of the accused has been established,” Deputy Police Commissioner (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi said.

She said she created the fake profile to defame the complainant. Police said the mobile phone and SIM card used in the offense had been recovered. PTI NIT SRY
