Guwahati: Actors Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal received death threat from an unidentified man through social media, the Mumbai police said.
The police said they have registered a case at Mumbai’s Santacruz police station and an investigation has been initiated.
According to the police, the actors were receiving threats on Instagram and the accused was also stalking Katrina Kaif and threatening her.
Based on the complaint, the Santacruz police here have registered an FIR against the unidentified person under Indian Penal Code Sections 506-II (criminal intimidation) and 354-D (stalking), the official said, adding that no arrest has been made so far.
The police have also registered a case under the IT Act.
The Bollywood couple seems to be the latest addition in a long line of celebrities who have received death threats lately.
In June 2022, Salman Khan and his father Salim Khan received a death threat through a letter. It read that the father-son duo would meet the fate of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, who was shot dead in May. After the letter, the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor’s security had been enhanced. He has also reportedly applied for a gun license for his safety.
