New Delhi: Twitter has deleted a fake handlecreated in the name of RBI Governor designate Urjit Patel that was used to respond to congratulatory messages following his appointment on Saturday.

The Twitter handle '@urjitpatel_' shot into limelight instantly after the government announced Patel as successor of Raghuram Rajan on his completion of three-year term on September 4.

 

The handle had tweeted messages expressing gratitude of the well wishers who began using that handle to congratulate Patel.

The RBI had instantly denied that Patel does not own the handle and now micro-blogging site Twitter has deleted the account.

The fake handle was opened in June this year but was not used to tweet anything before Saturday.
