Caralisa Monteiro filed a complaint with Mumbai Police over a screenshot of a fake tweet, which went viral after shared by OpIndia CEO Rahul Roshan.
Following this, OpIndia CEO Rahul Roshan attributed a fake image of the tweet to Monterio, showing her to be Hindu phobic and calling for genocide. Roshan's tweet has been deleted since then.
Alt News fact-checked the image and found disparities between Monteiro's original tweet and the fake image. They noted that the fake image had a downward arrow instead of the 'three-dot' drop-down menu. The image had the number of retweets and likes bar missing, and device used info also was absent in the viral image. The image also shows the tweet's date to be January 1, a red flag as to why it wasn't viral for over a month.
It isn't clear who circulated the fake image, and Monteiro has filed an online complaint with Mumbai police to investigate further.
