Bollywood is not only famous for its stars, but also for its die-hard fans. Can you just imagine a fan hacking into a celeb’s income tax account, just for a phone number? Well, one such fan has already done it.
In September, 2016, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s income tax account was hacked by an obsessive fan. His main motive was just to obtain her phone number, so that he can get a chance to talk to her. He used to help his colleagues filing their ITRs, hence he was well-versed in the system.
A police-officer from the Cyber Crime Branch has confirmed,
“When our team questioned him on Sunday, he confessed to have illegally got onto the IT account of the actress using her PAN no that he found online. The accused, a central government official, also files IT returns for colleagues. He knew that in most cases when IT returns are filed, one gets the mobile number of the person in the receipt. He was hoping to get the mobile number of the actress by filing her returns so that he could talk to her once as he is a big fan of her.”
