The Delhi Police have arrested three people who allegedly duped Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani by pretending to be Australian Tax officers, officials said on Thursday.

The actress, who now lives in Perth, was coerced to transfer 5700 Australian dollars (around Rs 3 lakh) via Western Union and RIA Money Transfer, police said, adding that the arrests were made by its Cyber Crime Unit (CyPAD).

Sharvani is an Indian contemporary dancer and actress.

The actress made her Bollywood debut with Kisna in 2005, where she was cast opposite Vivek Oberoi.

Sharvani also participated in a season of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, reports Hindustan Times. The actress is trained in Indian traditional dance forms such as Kalaripayattu, Chhau, and Kathak. The report adds that Isha's mother supervises a dance gurukul, while her father is a composer and her brother, a percussionist. Sharvani's stint with Jhalak Dikhla Jaa ended abruptly after the actress unexpectedly injured herself at a friend's place.
