The Hyderabad police have booked 10 unknown persons for harassing popular Telugu actor K Chiranjeevi's son-in-law Kalyaan Dhev on Instagram.
The police said on Thursday that they registered a case and took up investigations following a complaint by Kalyaan Dhev that the accused were harassing him by posting objectionable content against him and his family members.
The cyber crimes wing of the police booked the accused under Section 67 of the Information Technology Act.
The police said that they were in the process of identifying the accused and tracking their IP addresses. A police officer said they had also written to the photo-sharing app to provide details of the 10 account holders. He said after receiving the details, they would take further action in the case.
Kalyaan, an NRI businessman, approached the police three days ago and lodged a complaint. Kalyaan had married Chiranjeevi's younger daughter Srija in 2016. This was her second marriage.
She had earlier married Sirish Bharadwaj but the couple got divorced in 2014 after she filed dowry harassment case against him.
Chiranjeevi is married to Surekha Konidela, the daughter of Dr Allu Rama Lingaiah, a Padma Shri recipient, who starred in over a thousand films.
The couple have three children; Ram Charan, Srija and Susmitha. Ram Charan made his acting debut in 2007 and is among the highest paid stars in Tollywood, while Sushmita Konidela is an accomplished stylist and costume designer.
