Continuing its probe into the sensational social media racket linked to creating fake 'followers and likes', busted last month, the Mumbai Police has investigated at least 20 prominent personalities including rapper Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, alias Badshah.
After a 10-hour long interrogation by the Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) on Friday, Badshah has reportedly admitted to shelling out over Rs. 75 lakh for promoting his music album with fake likes and followers.
Now, the singer has released an official statement in which he has revealed that he has denied all the allegations that he was accused of and has never paid any money for fake followers or likes.
His statement reads:
"Following the summons, I have spoken to the Mumbai Police. I have aided the officials in their investigation by cooperating and carrying out the dued diligence on my part.
I've categorically denied all the allegations levelled against me and made it clear that I was never involved in such practices, and nor do I condemn them.
The investigation procedure is being executed in accordance with the law and I have complete faith in the authorities, who are handling this matter.
I'd like to thank all those who have conveyed their concern to me. It means a lot to me."
