Bombay, November 23 (IANS): Marathi actress Kranti Redkar-Wankhede, wife of Narcotics Control Bureau area manager Sameer Wankhede, filed an online complaint with Mumbai Police for certain tweets posted by Maharashtra Minister Nawab Malik, here on Tuesday .
Redkar-Wankhede said a fake Twitter handle was created in his name and a fake chat was posted there, which was retweeted by Malik without verification. She said the culprit also used his photographer as a profile photo on the fake handle and the cat was reposted by the minister without verification.
Malik tweeted the WhatsApp chat between Kranti and a certain Captain Jack Sparrow, who claimed to have strong evidence regarding his (Minister’s) connection to Dawood, referring to the runaway Mafia gift, Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar.
Kranti allegedly asked him, “What evidence do you have?” And the response was “I have a picture of Nawab Malik and Dawood”, to which she replied “Please send, you will get a reward for it”.
