Mayank, a native of Kotdwar’s Nimbhuchaud region, had returned home for holiday, authorities added.
He informed his interrogators that he made his Twitter account in 2020 and has a large number of virtual pals after being apprehended by the Mumbai Police between 2-3 a.m.
He stated that on December 31, he received a link via a message and was urged to join. He admits to taking between seven and eight screenshots and posting them to his timeline.
