“The film had been given for graphic designing at Annapurna Studio here. The producer’s team found that one Krishna Dayanand Chowdary, a trainee graphic designer, accessed the server of Annapura Studio and stole the film’s clipping,” Assistant Commissioner of Police (Cyber Crimes) Raghuveer said.

The team located Chowdary’s house at Tolichowki and checked his laptop, where they find the stolen video. It was also revealed that he had also forwarded the clipping to two of his friends at Vijayawada through his phone. However, his phone was found formatted, the officer said.
