Kareena Kapoor Khan has filed a complaint with the Cyber Cell in Mumbai against an unknown individual for allegedly hacking into her income tax account. The culprit also allegedly paid income tax amount on behalf of the actress.
According to reports, Kapoor Khan's accountant approached the Cyber Cell on Friday after he realised that her I-T account is allegedly hacked. He came to know about this after he couldn’t login into her account. Interestingly, yesterday also was the last day of the government's Income Declaration Scheme (IDS).
It is also been reported that the person might have gained access to Kapoor Khan's PAN number and used the same to hack into her account. The unidentified person also changed the password. Thankfully, the account was secured later on. The Cyber Cell has filed an FIR (First Information Report) and a hunt is currently on to track down the culprit.
Over the years, there have been numerous cases of email Ids and social media accounts of Hindi film celebrities being hacked. But a case of an I-T returns account of a celebrity being hacked seems to be the first one.
