Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan after an aerial battle on February 27, returned home last night. Ever since then, wishes have been pouring in for the brave pilot who shot down an F-16 fighter jet in combat. A video of him has also been going viral in which he is seen being interrogated by the Pakistan Army. To every sensitive question he is being asked in this video, he calmly replies, “I am sorry. I am not supposed to tell you this.”
And the Nagpur Police used this very line to deliver an important message with this tweet.
When someone asks for your OTP :

This tweet is indeed the need of the hour. Even though our banks regularly send us messages saying that they never ask for private information, cases of fraud continue to rise unabated. The city of Bengaluru has seen the most number of OTP thefts in India. Apart from using SMSes with suspicious links, fraudsters also pose as bank officials or customer care executives to ask for OTPs and then clean out the victim’s bank account using it.
Everyone applauded the Nagpur Police for conveying the message in a way that would ensure it remains ingrained in our minds.
Nagpur police ! Always innovative ! 😋 https://t.co/v9GJtWKrzP

Kudos to the police department. A really creative way to raise awareness about the rising number of frauds that happen because people disclose their OTPs and make themselves vulnerable to theft. Next time anyone asks for your OTP, you know exactly what to tell them!
