Trooper held for hack­ing Ka­reena Kapoor-Khan’s in­come tax ac­count, fil­ing dec­la­ra­tion


A26-year-old fan’s dream to talk to ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor-Khan has landed him be­hind bars as the cy­ber po­lice ar­rested him for hack­ing into the star’s in­come tax ac­count and fil­ing her dec­la­ra­tion. The ac­cused, Man­ish Ti­wari, is a para­mil­i­tary trooper posted in Chhattisgarh. The po­lice said that last Au­gust, while search­ing for the ac­tor’s mo­bile num­ber on the In­ter­net, Ti­wari stum­bled upon her PAN de­tails. He then hacked into the ac­tor’s in­come tax ac­count and up­loaded her dec­la­ra­tion form for 2016-17.

When Ka­reena’s char­tered ac­coun­tant (CA) Prakash Thakkar found out that she had al­ready filed the dec­la­ra­tion, he be­came sus­pi­cious. A team, led by Joint Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Crime) Sanjay Sax­ena tracked down Ti­wari to Chhattisgarh re­cently and brought him to Mumbai city.
