Dear client,

Since the police has already summoned you, you have to give them a statement appraising them of the embedded script and also provide them with the details of the company by entity which handles manages the chat application.

Please do remember that there is a certain liability imposed on u under the IT Act, you are bound to assist police department in this matter.

Kind Regards

In your statement spell out the facts and be clear. Don't get worried and afraid of any action.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Since the website is registered in your name, it remains your duty and responsibility to procure the IP address of the miscreant from the person handling the host server and provide it to the Police. You are inviting trouble for yourself, if you deny or refuse to provide the information asked by the Police.
