The Andhra Pradesh Police have booked a Panchkula woman for allegedly hacking her husband's email account and filing an income tax (I-T) return of `25 lakh for 2013-14, which could have helped her in maintenance case against her husband.
The woman has been booked under section 419 (punishment for cheating by personation) of the Indian Penal Code IPC and the Information Technology Act.
Vikas Goyal, a resident of Hyderabad, and Akshita, a resident of Sector 12-A of Panchkula, are fighting a legal battle in a Panchkula court. Earlier, Goyal was facing a dowry case too, but got acquitted.
In another case, the lower court fixed the maintenance to be paid to the woman and his son at `30,000. Goyal filed an appeal which is pending before the court of additional district and sessions judge in Panchkula. The court recently had ordered both of them to file I-T returns.
Goyal told the police in his complaint that he had filed all I-T returns but that of 2013-14 was pending as he had recently changed his job. But on April 5, he got to know that someone had filed his I-T return online.
Goyal, in his complaint, alleged that his wife filed his I-T return to get high maintenance.
The computer through which the I-T return was filed had been located to Delhi.
