The rumour that writer Sudha Murthy sells vegetables outside the temple one day every year is completely false.

It is unknown who or when the photo was taken.

IRS officer Surabi, who had shared false information that Sudha Murty was selling vegetables, has again shared the Bangalore Mirror message on his Twitter page.
