INDIA.MUMBAI: A new menace popped up on social media, accused of giving death threats to Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif. Recently, Bollywood’s favourite actors Vicky and Katrina got married in an intimate affair, including some family and friends. The mystery man took the help of the social media platform to encourage such inexact deliberations.
Later, Mumbai Police found him as a struggling actor, who aspires to marry Katrina. He is currently under police custody. Reportedly, his name is Manvinder Singh from Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow.
The accused man brags to adore Kaif and barges in on her social media handle for the past few months. Singh has a weird Instagram handle, where he has morphed his photo replacing Vicky Kaushal’s face with Katrina and posted it.
A case has been logged in Santacruz Police station on the complaint by Vicky Kaushal u/s 506(2),354(D) IPC r/w sec 67 IT Act. This complaint is made by husband Vicky Kaushal who states, that his wife has been constantly disturbed by an unknown man over her social media handle. She is now receiving death threats from the same person.
Earlier in June, an unsigned letter issuing threats to Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan was found near the Bandra Bandstand. This happened days after the murder of ‘youth icon’ Sidhu Mosse Wala, which made everyone concerned.
This threat was allegedly made by Lawrance Bishnoi’s gang, the prime suspect of Moose Wala. Recently, Salman applied for a weapon license for self-protection amid the death threats.
Currently, Katrina is shooting for her upcoming release of Sriram Raghavan’s film Merry Christmas with Vijay Sethupathi. According to reports, she is under tight security. Sources revealed, “There is nothing to worry about as there is heavy security on set and all precautions are always taken.”
