The difficulties are mounting for Manish Kashyap, a well-known YouTuber, in the case involving a fake video. The Economic Offenses Unit in Bihar has received arrest warrants for Kashyap and fellow YouTuber Yuvraj Singh. Additionally, the Unit has uncovered multiple financial irregularities involving Kashyap, who is also known as Tripurari Kumar Tiwari.
In response to these findings, four of Kashyap’s bank accounts have been frozen, containing a reported sum of approximately 42 lakh rupees. Kashyap gained notoriety for his role in disseminating a fake video depicting violence against Biharis in Tamil Nadu and has since become the focus of law enforcement agencies.

Manish Kashyap’s four bank accounts, containing a total of approximately Rs 42 lakh, have been frozen by Bihar Police. Specifically, Rs 51,069 was deposited in Kashyap’s IDFC Bank account, Rs 3,37,463 in his HDFC Bank account, Rs 3,37,496 in his SBI account, and Rs 34,85,909 in the HDFC Bank account of SACHTAK Foundation. These accounts have been frozen by law enforcement agencies.
It is worth noting that Manish Kashyap’s Twitter account was blocked. Subsequently, a new Twitter account was created and falsely claimed that the Bihar Police had arrested Kashyap. However, the Bihar Police denied the arrest and called the claim bogus. The Bihar Police issued a tweet stating that Manish Kashyap has not been arrested.
A man named Prashant Kumar, a resident of Barka Dhakaich in the Krishnabrahma police station area of Buxar, has been arrested by the EOU for creating confusion related to a certain post. He was residing in Shivpuri on Road No. 1 in the jurisdiction of the Shastri Nagar police station in Patna. Prashant has been sent to judicial custody.
In connection with the Tamil Nadu case, the EOU has registered three FIRs thus far, resulting in the arrest of three suspects by the police. Ongoing raids are being carried out in the pursuit of Manish Kashyap and Yuvraj Singh Rajput.
