The Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) first started this probe after Bollywood singer Bhumi Trivedi discovered her faux profile on social media and notified the police. During the investigation, the police unearthed a racket which creates faux social media profiles and sells faux followers and likes to celebrities and ”influencers”.

Badshah had claimed that the video for ‘Pagal Hai’ had acquired 75 million hits inside 24 hours of its launch, however the declare was rejected by Alphabet (which owns each Google and YouTube), states Mirror.

Nandkumar Thakur, deputy commissioner of Mumbai Police, advised the publication that different music movies shared by the rapper can even be scrutinised in the midst of the investigation.

Badshah had denied all allegations in opposition to him, in line with Press Trust of India.

“Following the summons, I’ve spoken to the Mumbai Police. I’ve aided the officers of their investigation by cooperating and finishing up the due diligence on my part. I’ve categorically denied all of the allegations levelled in opposition to me and made it clear that I used to be by no means concerned in such practices, nor do I condone them,” he stated.
