Fake Nomination Hub - Babanpur

Hi folks,

Today I found another fake nomination hub in a place called Babanpur, West Bengal (approximate Geo coordinates of the location is: 22.787327,88.378839). There are 100+ portal in this area and I guess at least 50% of them are fake. I got one nomination on review today with images stolen from a nomination (live Portal) in Durgapur, West Bengal. Checkout the images below that would give evidence to my point.

The supporting image clearly says the location of the object in Durgapur. The real location portal link:

@NianticAaron @NianticCasey-ING @NianticGiffard @NianticKN-ING Please take a look on these and verify each of the portals live here. Also do take serious necessary actions against the people doing these malpractices and people spamming 5* on these nominations without even verifying. These people don't belong in the Wayfarer system.
