Hyderabad : Veteran actress Salma Agha Khan's daughter Zara Khan has lodged a police complaint claiming that she has been receiving obscene messages and death threats from an unknown social media user.

The complaint has been registered at the Oshiwara Police station, following which the police officials nabbed the social media user who was a woman based in Hyderabad. Meanwhile, everyone was expecting the accused person to be a man.

The police found that a 23-year-old woman from Hyderabad named Noorak Saravar had been sending abusive messages to Khan for ‘personal reasons’. The accused has been asked to appear before the court on December 12.

Speaking to a news daily Mid-Day, Zara Khan said that it started in October when she started receiving abusive messages from an unknown Instagram user. The messages then turned into obscene texts and later, into death threats. Khan said that she was so scared that she locked herself up in her house and didn’t go out, and even stopped using social media.

Khan explained, “From October I have been receiving abusive and obscene messages on my Instagram page from four different accounts. I didn’t reply to any of them, but later I got death threats from them. I was scared and locked myself at home. I also stopped working and avoided social media. Then my relatives also started receiving such messages on their social media accounts. After a month, I registered a complaint.”
