A few days ago, Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt was surprised when his dentist asked him as to why the director, who is generally vocal on all issues, was chatting in a subdued manner on a popular social networking site. Similarly, actor Paresh Rawal met an aspiring actress a few days ago who claimed to have e-mailed him her portfolio after interacting with him on the networking site.
Both Mahesh Bhatt and Paresh Rawal have complained to the city police alleging that some unidentified persons are impersonating them on a social networking site. Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria said that preliminary enquiries in the matter were being conducted.
Maria added that a formal offence would be registered with the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell and confident of arresting the guilty persons.
