A Mumbai Mirror report stated that Akshara had shared some private images with Tanuj when they were dating, because of which he could be called in for questioning.
Tanuj's spokesperson told the Indian Express: "Tanuj is aware of what Akshara must be going through and said the incident is regrettable. We are more than happy to cooperate with the police or with any investigation, so as the culprit gets punished and gets caught. Tanuj is going to give it his all and whatever is needed of him."
A senior officer who was investigating the entire matter said, "Akshara was using an iPhone 6 till 2013, which had the photos. Prima facie investigation has revealed the photos were shared with Tanuj in 2013. He may be summoned for questioning."
