Bengaluru: Man in custody for harassing Facebook friend | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A 26-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly trying to force a woman, whom he had befriended on social media three years ago, into a physical relationship with him.
Shravan Kumar of Papareddypalya had sent a friend request to the complainant, a healthcare worker, and she had accepted it. He told her that he had health issues such as bleeding from mouth and gained her sympathy with his lies.
She shared her mobile number as per his request and they started chatting. Later, he slowly resorted to sexting and asked her to have a physical relationship with him. He threatened to kill her if she revealed his demand to anyone. Following this, she stopped chatting with him and blocked his number, police said.
An enraged Shravan reached the clinic where she worked and tried to snatch her mobile phone to unblock his number. He allegedly tore her dress before he fled the spot. Annapoorneshwarinagar police have registered a case of sexual harassment, stalking and criminal intimidation under IPC sections 354, 354d and 506. He is in judicial custody now.
