The Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) Cyber ​​Police filed an FIR against the unknowns on June 8. The victim complained that his phone was hacked and loan app officers circulated the victim’s Aadhar card along with a text message that he raped his mother and sister, to all contacts from his phone.
“On June 2, the filmmaker was at home when he received an SMS on WhatsApp threatening him to send Rs 3,500 or a metamorphosed photo of him would be sent to all his contacts.

When he ignored the message, his transformed photo with his Aadhar card and the fake text message were sent to his contact list,” a cyber police officer said.
