Bollywood actor Swara Bhasker has once again hogged the limelight after she lodged a complaint with the Mumbai police against a Twitter user for making derogatory remark on her on the micro-blogging site. The actor shared the screenshot of the obscene comment with the Mumbai police as the accused deleted the tweet.

Swara tagged the Mumbai police as she tweeted, “In his own words ‘mad, proud and fortunate nationalist & Hindu’ bringing shame upon his (and my) religion and nation! Also I think this qualifies as harassment or Eve teasing or something @MumbaiPolice (sic).”

The Mumbai police in reply asked Swara for her contact number promising prompt action.

In the cases of cyber-crime, the law expects the victim to come forward and lodge complaint. Once the complaint gets registered, the police gets legal power to act on the case. This becomes crucial in cyber-crimes because the police need to furnish the privacy details of the one being accused from the respective social media platforms.

Recently, the Veere Di Wedding actress parted ways with her boyfriend Himanshu Sharma. According to Spotboye.com, the trouble in Swara and Himanshu’s paradise cropped up when the Veere Di Wedding actress broached the subject of marriage, but Himanshu told her that marriage was never on his mind. The report has also published a statement piece by Swara Bhasker, ''Jab near future mein nahin, toh phir kya guarantee hai ki distant future mein hogi? Ji, woh kehte hain na insaan ka vishwaas hi uth jaata hai if and when someone puts his/her hand on your shoulder but not tightly enough.'' Thus, Swara decided to part ways with Himanshu.

On the work front, Swara Bhasker was last seen in Veere Di Wedding, co-starring Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Shikha Talsania. She hasn't announced her upcoming projects as of now. Himanshu Sharma's last project was Aanand L Rai's Zero.
