Probe on
After investigation, cops found that the miscreant was using the account (@jaitleyarun) to interact with a number of people. Jaitley had also provided some printouts of the account's activity to the police. 

The miscreant has closed the account now. Delhi police had approached Twitter to trace the IP addresses of the culprit. The police are still searching for the accused.

Big B's big problem
Recently, actor Amitabh Bachchan was left fuming over a fake Twitter account on his name which was spewing venom at Shah Rukh Khan's film Ra. One. The Twitter account going by the name SrBachchann is a little like Bachchan's online name on Twitter which is SrBachchan and was being used by the person to disgrace Shah Rukh's movie.
