A man in Tamil Nadu has met police to file a complaint against Google and its Maps App for showing him to have visited places that he says he did not. The complainant, R Chandrasekaran, is a resident of Lal Bahadur Nagar in Mayiladuthurai.

Upon reaching home from work, Chandrasekaran hands over his mobile phone to his wife, who then checks the Google Map’s 'Your Timeline' section to find out where he had been throughout the day.

One day the list of places included spots Chandrasekaran said he never visited, said the complaint.

The letter accessed by CNN-News18 read, “For example, the app shows places on May 20 that's never been to. This is causing a lot of suspicion and confusion in the family...”

No formal complaint has been filed yet and police sources said they are trying to verify its authenticity.
