As reported in India Today, Urmila in her complaint said that she received a link to her Instagram account. When she clicked the link, she was asked to login into her Instagram account. After she entered the password, she couldn’t access the account and then tried to reset the password. After trying to login, an SMS was sent to some other number for recovery of the password and that is when she learnt that her account has been hacked.

On December 17, Urmila again tweeted that her account is back. She wrote: “And I’m back on @instagram again 😁 Thank you @MumbaiPolice and @instagram for your quick support 🙏🏼🙏🏼 even though some of my posts are missing 😔”.
