Durgesh refers to a set of viral Instagram posts in which a man identified as Sanjay Kapoor claims to be repeatedly catfished by an older man named Durgesh. After screenshots began widely circulating in late October 2017, a man came forward on Facebook claiming they the photographs were actually of a son and his disabled father.


On October 26th, 2017, Instagram user @sanjayyy_kapoor[1] posted a series of photographs captioned with claims that he had been catfished by an older man named Durgesh several times, leading him to assault the man (shown below).

Within four days, the tweet gathered more than 258,800 likes and 105,500 retweets. Meanwhile, Imgur[10] user fatherofpenguinmafia reposted the screenshots, which accumulated upwards of 213800 views and 5,800 points over the next 72 hours.
