Author and chairperson of Infosys Foundation Sudha Murty, on Sunday, filed a complaint alleging misuse of her name in connection with two separate events in the US. The complaint was lodged by her executive assistant, Mamata Sanjay.

The first incident involved an invitation to Murty to attend the 50th anniversary of the Kannada Koota of Northern California (KKNC).

Despite declining the invitation due to scheduling conflicts, Murty discovered on August 30 that promotional materials for the event were falsely advertising her as the chief guest.

The KKNC organisers informed Murty's office that a woman named Lavanya, claiming to be Murty's personal assistant, had confirmed her attendance.

The second

incident involved a woman named Shruthi who allegedly collected $40 from individuals under the pretense that Murty would be attending a 'meet-and-greet' event in the US on September 26. Murty's office got to know about this when it stumbled upon an advertisement for the event.

Following these allegations, the Bengaluru Police registered a case against Lavanya and Shruthi.

The charges include impersonation and unauthorised event activities, which are serious offenses under the Information Technology Act and the Indian Penal Code.

The police are currently investigating the whereabouts of the two women, who may be either in the US or India.

Murty has requested a copy of the FIR for further follow-up.
