Earlier I had registered (an) FIR in Old Goa Police Cyber Cell, but no action from cops came till now. My company has been registered in Goa," the actor said in a tweet.
She also added in her tweet, "Dear 'Go Daddy Help', your team is not cooperating with our team for my hacked e-commerce website 'http://happysoul.in'. Despite my deluxe security on your server and SSL, the hacker who hacked again made ransom demands and threatened to sell my data and will also sell drugs on my site."
