Mumbai police have registered an unidentified person for allegedly using a fake Adhaar card in the name of Bollywood actress Urvashi Rautela to book a luxurious room in a 5-star hotel located in Bandra, Mumbai. Urvashi who was lately in limelight for her forthcoming film 'Hate Stor - 4', has also been a part of films like "Singh Saab The Great", "Sanam Re" and "Kaabil". The former Miss Diva (2015) has represented India at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant as well. She has also featured opposite Yo Yo Honey Singh in superhit track 'Love Dose'. Hotels generally ask for valid government identity proof to book a room. And mostly Aadhaar cards, which carry a 12-digit unique identification number acts as a proof of a person's identity and address. The hotel staff however informed police that the room got booked after they had received Rautela's Adhaar card as a proof. However, the Aadhar number on the card was different from Rautela's actual Aadhar number which clearly makes it an offense under Indian Penal Code sections 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery) against the unidentified person. The fraud came to Urvashi's knowledge when she had come to the same hotel for an event. After a representative of the hotel staff approached Rautela and informed her of the development that a room has been booked in her name through online booking. When she checked with her secretary, even she denied having any bookings in the hotel. In the police complaint, Rautela said,
I asked my secretary about it and learnt that no booking was done. Someone has misused my name and photograph on the Aadhaar card to book a room in the hotel. However, the Aadhaar number didn't belong to me.The police is now taking help from cyber experts to crack the case. In the end, a police official added;
This means that someone made a fake Aadhaar card of Urvashi Rautela and booked the hotel room. It is a serious case of Aadhaar being misused.
