Sitara Ghattamaneni, the daughter of Mahesh Babu and Namrata Shirodkar, has fallen prey to a “cybercrime incident.” A fake Instagram account named Sitara has been created, not only ‘fraudulently posing’ as Mahesh Babu’s daughter, but also providing trading and investing links to platform users.
On her Instagram account, Sitara’s mother Namrata shared the Mahesh Babu team’s official statement about the incident on Saturday, warning the impersonator of strict action. She wrote, ‘Attention! This is @sitaraghattamaneni’s only account. Any other handle is not to be trusted except the verified one.”
Mahesh Babu’s team stated in the statement that police are already investigating the matter and are doing all within their power to find the individual who created Sitara’s fake account.
The statement reads, “The Madhapur police, in connection with Team GMB, have issued a warning about a cybercrime incident involving the impersonation of Ms Sitara Ghattamaneni on Instagram. An unidentified user has been fraudulently posing as Ms. Ghattamaneni, sending trading and investment links to unsuspecting users.”
The statement further reads, “Authorities are urging the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity. Efforts are underway to trace and apprehend the individual responsible for these activities to prevent future occurrences.”
