Detail: My brother was operating my personal email, from there he sent a new job application to the wrong address; I genuinely did not want to apply for the new job, in fact I had just received a raise at my present job.
This is a partly India govt. owned company (kind of subsidiary of public sector unit) where I work. The email has my resume with name of the "prospect" company. No negative things about my employer.
Due to a typing error in the "to" field and the email has landed into the email folder of my current HR. There is no option to recall the message.
I have sent another email on discovering the error, this time addressing my own company HR directly, stating the above facts.
Should I personally contact HR and reiterate the facts? What else should be done to control the damage that can be caused?
Should I be prepared for my boss to be asking me on this?
Should I indeed start looking for a new job asap, when it was not my strong intention earlier (I mean who is not open for a better opportunity, but I had specifically no desire for this "new" job)
Clarification: My brother applied "on my behalf". He does that sometimes, at times without my permission but there has never been such a major miss before. Usually, I can ignore what he does, because at max, even if invited for interview, I can say I'm not interested in the exact role.

There is not much else that you can do. You have already contacted HR and explained the situation, what they do with this information is out of your control.
