Back in 2016, actors Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan stirred controversy with an ugly spat when both of them slapped each other with legal notices. Denying any claims of their affair, Hrithik had alleged that he received hundreds of emails from Kangana’s email account.
He then filed a complaint of stalking and impersonation against an unknown person, saying that his email ID was being used to speak with Kangana. He had also filed an FIR against the ‘Queen’ actor for harassing, stalking and damaging his reputation after she addressed him as a “silly-ex”, reported DNA.
However, back then, the forensic experts filed a nil report claiming that they could not ascertain any facts about the email ID, reported Hindustan Times.
But now, the ‘Kaabil’ actor has again reopened the case saying that he wants the police to catch the real culprits who had impersonated him.
After Hrithik’s lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani wrote a letter to the Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, his case has been now transferred from Cyber Cell to the Crime Intelligence Unit.
According to India Today, the letter reads:
“We write to you on behalf of our client Mr. Hrithik Roshan. Our client lodged a FIR bearing C.R.No.78/ 2016 dated 23.05.2016, with the cyber crime police station against unidentified individuals for offenses punishable under sections 419 IPC r/w. sections 66(c) and 66 (d) of the IT Act.
