A young chartered accountant student from Hyderabad has allegedly hacked into the e-filing of income tax returns account of leading industrialist Anil Ambani, with an intention to know his income and tax paid, police said on Friday.


The 21-year-old woman, who has been doing her chartered accountancy articleship at Manoj Daga & Company in Hyderabad, was booked under relevant sections of the Information Technology Act on September 7, after a preliminary investigation and now faces arrest in the case.

“The girl hacked Ambani’s e-filing of Income-Tax returns account with an intention to check the industrialist’s income and tax amount paid by him.

After hacking his account she accessed the details of his income and PAN card number and even changed the password of his e-account,” an official involved in the probe said.

Ambani complained to Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy, who directed cyber cell inspector Mukund Pawar to probe the case. The server has been seized, Pawar said adding that, “we have all evidence against her.
