I received an email, saying these two solutions to be similar:

https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/20066762
https://www.codechef.com/viewsolution/20017159

Although they both happen to be similar, I strongly admit not having participated in any kind of plagiarism. I did not use any online IDE, and there is no way my code could have been used.

The solution to the problem is fairly straight-forward which involved only printing a bunch of numbers, and there is a high possibility that the two solutions happened to be coded in a very similar style.

I am very disappointed that I have been falsely accused of this charge.

Yeah, the solutions are too similar, But as you have mentioned, this is a problem which do not requires complex code.
I think you should be given benefit of dbout.
Please reply back to the mail. I hope for the best.
Note: I couldn’t see any rating drop in your profile.
