Filmmaker and wife of Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao has filed for an FIR against a Facebook account which has been impersonating her. The facebook account has been in conversations with Kiran Rao's family members and friends. Kiran has placed a complaint with the Cyber Crime Cell.

Filmmaker Kiran Rao has lodged a complaint with Cyber Crime Cell against a facebook id which projected itself as her facebook account.

According to media reports, Rao has stated that someone has opened a fictitious Facebook account in her name and has been chatting with her friends and family members.

The cyber crime police station registered a FIR against an unknown person for cheating by impersonation and identity theft.

K M M Prasanna, Additional commissioner of police (crime) confirmed that such a complaint had been lodged but declined to give out any further details quoting it as a “sensitive matter”.

According to media sources, Rao submitted a written application to the cyber police, complaining that recently her friends told her about a series of chats on Facebook, which she was clueless about.

“After going through her application, we have registered an offence and have started investigation,” said a police officer.

With this case coming to the forefront, it only explains how the cyber world has always proved something so personally violating for a person that other celebrities and known faces should surely be beware of. They should take precaution and report such cases if something like this seems to come to their knowledge.
