Five fake Twitter accounts created in the name of Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal were blocked on Tuesday after Delhi Police's Cyber Cell made a request to the authorities at the microblogging site.

The L-G Office staff had informed Delhi Police headquarters late Monday evening about the fake Twitter accounts, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber Cell) Anyesh Roy said.
