Mumbai: On Thursday, several media reports claimed that the legal war between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut was finally over. It was reported that the Cyber Crime Cell of Mumbai Police decided to close the investigation due to lack of evidence.
However, just few hours later, Hrithik Roshan’s legal team responded by slamming the reports and saying that the investigation into Hrithik and Kangana’s emails has not been shut. The team has also said that case is not only in motion but a section of the media was in partnership with Kangana’s lawyer to mislead people with false information regarding the case.
“Media reports which suggest that the investigation into the Hrithik - Kangana emails is closed, are totally false. A section of the media in connivance with Ms. Ranaut's lawyer have sought to disseminate this false information. The investigation in fact continues and Mr. Saxena (Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime) has informed Mr. Mahesh Jethmalani, Senior Counsel advising Mr. Roshan that "the case is not yet closed. Investigation is still going on," Hrithik's spokesperson said in a statement.
Previously reports suggested that the Mumbai police tracked down the email id email@example.com, the alleged email account of Hrithik Roshan, to someone in the US. Since the IP address is not operational in India, the police failed to unmask the face behind those emails and decided to submit an NIL report indicating that the case is highly likely to hit dead end, a daily had reported.
Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee called the Mumbai Police’s decision to shut the case as a sign of victory saying that he is not surprised by the Cyber Cell submitting a NIL report in the case post their investigation.
“This means that they could not trace any imposter as was claimed by Hrithik Roshan. Kangana has always been maintaining that there was no imposter ever”, Rizwan was quoted by a daily.
However, Hrithik’s team hit back instantly saying that they are still holding their side of the story, and also claimed that it was Kangana who ‘persistently hounded Roshan on emails’. “It is categorically asserted that there is unimpeachable evidence to suggest that there was no relationship of any kind between Mr. Roshan and Ms. Ranaut and that Ms. Ranaut persistently hounded Mr. Roshan on emails with the intention to entice him into a relationship,” the statement further stated.
The controversial tiff between the two began when Kangana called the 'Bang Bang' actor her silly ex. Following her statement, Hrithik slapped a legal notice on her and demanded an apology.
Ever since then, their on-going legal battle topped up with heated and counter-arguments has been making headlines....
