Pune: A 35-year-old man has lodged an FIR against his wife, mother-in-law, brother-in-law and another woman, for allegedly hacking his account on the Income Tax Department website and downloading his I-T returns documents. The man and his wife are fighting a bitter divorce case in the court in Jalgaon. 

The complainant, who works as a supervisor with MIDC, has lodged the complaint at Bhosari police station. The couple had got married in 2011 but there used to be quarrels over various issues, including his wife's insistence of staying separately.

Since 2012, his wife started living at her mother's house. In June 2012, she filed a case of harassment against him and his family members, following which he filed a divorce petition in Pune court and it was transferred to Jalgaon on the demand of his wife. The court gave an order in his wife's favor, but he appealed against the order in a senior division court in July last year.

Meanwhile, his wife moved court demanding maintenance from him. “My wife was to submit my income details in the court. On March 1 last year, I had received an email from the I-T department that someone has changed my user ID and password. Then I had lodged a complaint with the Pune Cyber Cell. I had also enquired with the I-T department, who gave me details like the IP address used to changed the user ID and password. I also learnt that my I-T return documents were downloaded. From the mobile numbers given for making the changes, I found out that they belonged to my mother-in-law and brother-in-law and another woman," the FIR states.

Police have booked the accused for theft under the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Information Technology (IT) Act.
