Film director Raj Kaushal was questioned by the Cyber Crime police station at Bandra Kurla Complex on Saturday, in connection with a rumour in the city on March 23, which said three supporting cables of the Bandra Worli Sea Link had snapped.
Initial investigations have revealed that the rumour may have originated from posts on Twitter by Kaushal, who is actress Mandira Bedi’s husband, and one Deesha Kapadia, on the same day.
The two have also been named by Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) which built the sea link, as the persons who sent the tweets, in their complaint.
According to sources, Kaushal, in his statement to the police, claimed that the tweet did not originate from his mobile phone but he had received it from someone else.

Police said they have already initiated moves to get data from the internet service provider and concerned portals to find out where the tweet originated and how it moved from one person to another on the portal.
