Bollywood celebrities have always been at the receiving end when it comes to imposters. The latest to have suffered the wrath of an online imposter is none other than Hrithik Roshan who recently filed a police complaint for the same.
In fact on Friday, Hrithik Roshan filed a complaint with the Mumbai police accusing an unknown person of using an email address similar to his and impersonating him. Along with filing the complaint, the actor has also requested the police to get the account terminated and to trace its owner.
In his four-page complaint sent to Commissioner of Police (CP) Rakesh Maria, Juhu police, the Mumbai Police Cyber Cell and others, Hrithik Roshan has requested the police to shut down email@example.com and also trace the fraud operating the account. Further stating that since Hrithik has a massive fan following and he is pretty active on social networking sites like twitter and facebook, fans tend to send him mails containing images and/or videos of themselves which can be used in a malicious way by the imposter.
Simultaneously, CP Maria stated that the police were currently probing the complaint to identify the perpetrator.
