Abhinandan Varthaman - the name literally every Indian knows and will never, ever forget. The Wing Commander has now become the epitome of bravery and courage in the country and no could be more proud about it.
It's actually not just him, but his name as well that has inspired people and some have even named their new-born after him.
Bollywood is also not behind, and people are already planning to make movies about him.
But, some people have also decided to cash in on his popularity in the worst way. Turns out, a lot of fake accounts with his name sprung up online soon after his release and well, it's not him, folks!
We all know how the number game on social media works, and it's so sad that some people will go to any extreme lengths to get that, even if it means impersonating a national hero online.March 3, 2019
Even the Indian Air Force had to step in and issue a proper warning as more and more fake accounts popped up.
#FAKE ACCOUNTS : Wg Cdr Abhinandan Varthaman does not have a social media account on any portal (Facebook /Instagram /Twitter). Please avoid following any fake accounts being used in the name of any IAF Airwarrior for spreading misinformation.
