Mumbai's Bandra police have registered a case against an unidentified person for allegedly using a fake Aadhaar card in name of Bollywood actor Urvashi Rautela to book a room at a five-star hotel.
Rautela learned about the fraud when she visited the hotel to attend an event.
Hotel staff approached Rautela and informed her that a room was booked there in her name.
Police registered complain under IPC sections 420 and 468
Rautela's secretary denied having made any booking at the Bandra hotel.
The actor then immediately looked at the booking detail records of the hotel and found that a fake Aadhaar card in her name was used to book a room, police said.
Based on the actor's complaint, Bandra police registered an offense under IPC sections 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery) against the unidentified person.
Hotel was booked online through fake ID
Preliminary investigation revealed that the room was booked online by using fake Aadhaar card.
Rautela has acted in films like Singh Saab the Great, Sanam Re, and Kaabil.
Notably, hotels generally ask for a guest's identity proof while booking the room.
Aadhaar card, issued by the UIDAI, carries a 12-digit unique identification number. It acts as a proof of a person's identity and address.
