The Mumbai Crime Branch CIU (Crime Intelligence Unit), which is investigating the complaint filed by Hrithik Roshan in the year 2016 Hrithik versus Kangana email case, has issued summons to the actor to record statement on Saturday. Earlier, sources in the CIU said Hrithik Roshan would be called for recording his statement in the case this week. Roshan had filed the complaint in 2016 alleging that someone impersonating him emailed Kangana Ranaut from a fake email ID.
Kangana Ranaut had then claimed that the email ID was provided to her by Hrithik Roshan and they had been communicating through the same email ID till 2014. In 2016, Hrithik had sent a legal notice to Kangana after she had referred to him as a silly ex. Hrithik had denied any kind of relationship between him and Kangana.
The two actors had worked together in the films – Kites (2010) and Krish 3 (2013). Hrithik had then claimed that Kangana had been sending him absurd emails.
In December 2020, the case was transferred to CIU after a request was made by the lawyer of Hrithik Roshan to look into the complaint filed in 2016. Earlier, the case was with the cyber cell of Mumbai Police.
In 2016, the cyber cell had also taken Hrithik’s laptop and phone for investigation.
