Hyderabad: A few tweets posted by a man using Satish Maneshinde's name, have gone viral on social media.

Maneshinde is the lawyer defending actress Rhea Chakraborty.

The tweets posted from this account were in support of the actress and about updates related to her case. Many social media users believe that it is from the official account of Maneshinde.

Fact check:

The tweets are not authentic. So, the claim is FALSE.

Newsmeter viewed the account of the twitter handle and found that it is a fan account. The bio of the twitter account states that it is a fan account of Satish Maneshinde. We also found that the account was created in September 2020 and has over 3900 followers.

The username, @satishmaneshnde misspells the lawyer's last name, 'Maneshinde' which proves the account is not authentic. The website linked in the user's bio, "Satish.org" leads to a domain broker service that offers you to buy the particular domain name.
