Tech Savvy Victim Sounds Alarm

Sonawane, a tech-savvy individual with years of experience in software solutions, first noticed the trouble when his online accounts, including social media, Gmail, and even shopping portals, were compromised. Despite changing passwords and taking precautions, the hacker remained a persistent ghost in his digital life.

“He even switched phones and SIM cards, but the hacker followed him to his new Gmail account,” Sonawane’s lawyer, Prakash Salshingikar, explained. This relentless intrusion led Sonawane to a chilling suspicion: a microchip implanted in his body.

Frustrated by the lack of action from authorities despite writing to the Mumbai Police Commissioner, Zonal Deputy Commissioner, and the local police station, Sonawane sought legal recourse. The Metropolitan Magistrate, recognizing the seriousness of the allegations, directed Charkop police to officially register and investigate his complaint.
