Sunny informed about the same on her Twitter account, she tweeted, “This just happened to me. INSANE. Some idiot used my Pan to take a 2000 RS loan and FCK’d my CIBIL score (SIC)”, referring to her credit score.
She informed, while quoting a report of TOI and has also tagged Indiabulls Securities Limited (Dhani Stocks was earlier Indiabulls Securities), and Indiabulls Home Loans.

Somehow someone has availed a loan fraudulently on my name. My details are not matching. It has been a month and I am getting blank emails as replies from Dhani. Also sent a mail to the nodal head but no reply from him. @RBI @IncomeTaxIndia @nsitharaman @dhanicares @adityakalra pic.twitter.com/E3pcSppOgE

You can cite this. Many people are sending me DMs saying they facing same issue. Dhani has fixed my score issue. I did decline to share any docs which they asked for. I continue to ask for all docs related to my fake loan, including PAN, photos etc. https://t.co/igvPp55N7h
