Indian Idol 12 contestant Anjali Gaikwad was recently accused of scamming people. She was accused of the same on Twitter by an influencer who goes by the name Harami Parindey. He alleged that the singer was trying to hack his account and dupe him of money. Now, Anjali has broken her silence. She has revealed that her Instagram account has been hacked since April 2. She also said that the hacker is asking for money.
Sharing her side of the story, Anjali told Hindustan Times, "My Instagram account has been hacked. It's been 20-21 days. I don't know how he did it. The hacker also called me and asked for a ransom of Rs 70,000. 'Paise do aur account lelo,' aisa mujhe call aaya. A few days later I even reported it to the cybercrime. But there is no update on it yet."
The singer added, "The hacker also started asking for money from a lot of people. Many are thinking that I'm asking them for money. People are thinking I'm tricking them. I have been quite disturbed. I'm receiving a lot of emails and messages from people. I'm clearing it with everyone individually. Some people are calling me fraud while a few are understanding that it's been hacked."
