Reason(s): Block evasion and disruptive sockpuppetry. Pratap Pandit was blocked on wikiquote, during which time he edited with IP socks. Pratap Pandit is a confirmed sockpuppet on wikipedia : SPI and the sockmaster is BabbarJatt. Block evasion and sockpuppetry abuse is also suspected on other wikimedia projects.

He was blocked as sockmaster of a very large amount of sockpuppets which were active across many wikimedia projects, including wikiquote and the Hindi wikipedia. His account needs to be checked for sleeper accounts and additional socks across wikimedia projects.

In Hindi wikipedia, it looks clear that he has also used socks (User:TedCarl and User:Pratap Pandit, and more?) .

Due to confirmed massive sockfarm at enwiki, there needs to be a check at hiwiki also. Two socks have been found at hiwki, but there is likely more.

There is disruptive sockpuppetry across different wikimedia projects, creating multiple accounts to evade current blocks and continuing same problematic behavior of continued edit warring, personal attacks, intimidation and harassment of multiple users for which he was blocked on at least two projects (indefinitely on wikipedia)

Pratap's sockpuppetry at english wikipedia was already previously discussed at wikiquote .

Note Note: If you have changed the wiki you want to investigate with hiwiki, please provide evidence based on sockpuppets abuse on hiwiki, not on the work of other wikis. I already know that he used sockpuppets on enwiki. But that's on the wiki, and whether he actually exploited the account on another wiki also needs a separate rationale. Please remove any accounts for which hiwiki's account is not registered. And reorganize it based on the abuse on hiwiki. --Sotiale (talk) 03:32, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Reason(s): : it seems was instructing Pratap (from wikidata) to act as his meatpuppet at wikiquote to add to Pratap's intimidation, harassment and personal attacks.

I want to check if there is a sockmaster ( on the basis that they are a new account with edits uncharacteristic of a new user). Wikidata has now and not found the sockmaster at wikidata.

The same check as in wikidata needs to be made for wikiquote. It is very likely that the sockmaster could be found at wikiquote, since the meatpuppet instructions were about wikiquote.

At wikiquote, it was already noted that Pratap's account may need , that that he and that .

User:Sunfee was instructing Pratap to act as his meatpuppet and shares part of the blame for Pratap's harassment that was noted by many editors and admins on wikiquote. It is also likely that part or even most of the meatpuppet instructions were over email.

User:Sunfee and User:27.122.14.73 : Sunfee is a SPA that was created only for this purpose of instructing Pratap to act as his meatpuppet. It is very clear that Sunfee is a sockpuppet of somebody, Sunfee seems very experienced with wikipedia and it is not possible that this user has no other account.

This is SPA account with about 5 edits who seems very experienced with wikipedia, so there has to be a sockmaster. And that sockmaster is likely not to be found locally at wikidata, but at wikiquote. Since Sunfee was giving meatpuppet instructions for wikiquote, I think the sockmaster could very likely be found at wikiquote. Is it possible to check if the sockmaster account can be found at wikiquote?
