The Mumbai Police earlier this week arrested a 20-year-old man for allegedly creating a fake profile of Bollywood playback singer Bhoomi Trivedi. The interrogation of the accused Abhishek Daude revealed that there are several such companies that sell followers and ‘likes’ on social media.

Explains a lot about fake followers industry in India

This should be an advert for VPN. I guess he didn't so If he used VPN or proxy he wouldn't have been caught and he would have banked hard.

Unless..that VPN gives out your information to the police..like most VPN's did in the past to catch some bad guys.."HideMyAss" for example did that in the past.

Most people get caught using fake accounts when they impersonate celebrities or involve in political propaganda. Otherwise, authorities don't bother about them unless there is a complaint.
