ĎĎThe girl hacked Anil Ambaniís e-filing of Income-Tax returns account with an intention to check the industrialistís income and tax amount paid by him over the period of time.

After hacking the account of the chairman of Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG), she accessed the details of his income, tax amount paid, PAN card number and even changed twice the password of his e-account on the IT website,íí an official involved in the probe said.

According to police, a chartered accountant firm in Mumbai, which files Anil Ambaniís individual tax details, was intimated through an email from IT department on June 26 that as per request, the industrialistís e-return account had been changed. Again on July 12, the firm received another email stating that second time the password had been changed.

As suspicion grew, the ADAG group representative complained to Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy, who directed cyber cell inspector Mukund Pawar to probe the case.

Probe revealed that account was hacked from Manoj Daga & Companyís computer following which a team rushed there and questioning, the girl confessed to have hacked into Anil Ambaniís account,íí Pawar said.
