Deputy Commissioner of Police (IFSO, Special Cell) Hemant Tiwari said they have got important clues and the accused will be arrested soon.

The Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) of Delhi Police on November 11, had registered an FIR against unidentified people in connection with the case after the Delhi Commission for Women sent a notice to the city police.

Earlier in the day, IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw met social media platforms on the issue.

Terming deepfakes as a new threat to democracy, he said that the government will come up with new regulations soon to tackle deepfakes.

The minister said that companies have agreed on the need for clear actionable work in areas such as detection, prevention, strengthening of reporting mechanisms, and raising user awareness.

The viral video shows a woman dressed in a black workout onesie inside an elevator. Her face has been edited using AI to resemble Mandanna.
