The fear, doubts and speculations have come forward after Narcotics Control Bureau summoned some famous Bollywood stars like Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor for enquiry related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s case.

By this method, one is able to clone the entire data and cellular identity of one mobile phone into a completely different phone. It is to note that cloning is not legal for ordinary people and authorities can do it after completing all the legalities.

Experts in the field of cloning say that the process requires some good amount of programming skills. The process of cloning just takes a few minutes and within that short time, your entire data will copied from once dive to another. However, one needs to have physical access to the phone you would want to clone.
