MUMBAI: A man from Uttar Pradesh has been arrested for allegedly hacking the Instagram account of a woman in the city days before her wedding and has announced that he will elope before the wedding.

The woman, a resident of Goregaon East, got engaged in May and got married last month. The woman’s parents posted her wedding invitation on social media and sent soft copies of the invitation to their relatives via WhatsApp on June 10.

A day later, the woman noticed that her Instagram account had been hacked by an unknown person and her wedding invitation was posted on it: “This woman will leave her groom and run away from her wedding.” The accused also claimed that the woman was known to him and was in contact with him.

“As soon as the woman came to know about the hack, she informed her parents and finances, who contacted the police and reported the incident. Based on his complaint, we have registered a case against an unidentified person,” said a police officer from Vanrai police station.

Police officials later learned that the number that hacked the woman’s Instagram page was being used in Uttar Pradesh. Police later reached out to the Uttar Pradesh Cyber ​​Crime Police and traced the accused, identified as Yakub Daniel Katti (25), unknown to the woman and her family.

“We have arrested Katti and produced him before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court and he has been remanded in police custody. We are now trying to find out the motive behind the crime and why Katthi targeted the woman and from where he got her contact details and Instagram account ID,” said the police officer.
