Multiple fake accounts have been opened on popular social media platform Facebook using the name and picture of Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi.

The Commerce Ministry said this in a press release on Thursday.

It said recently it has been noticed that the campaign has been running for some time by opening multiple accounts on social media platform Facebook using the name and picture of Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi. 

This is likely to tarnish the image of the Commerce Minister, reads the release.

The police and the RAB's IT intelligence branch are conducting necessary activities in this regard, the statement said.

In the release it is requested that the operators of these fake accounts should refrain from immoral acts, otherwise, necessary legal action will be taken against those responsible.

The ministry said in a statement that Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi did not have a Facebook account.

A general diary (GD) has been filed in this regard with Ramna Model Police Station in Dhaka on July 6.
