Bengaluru: The Vivek Nagar police have arrested a 26-year-old Mumbai-based man for harassing a woman, a private company employee in the city, by sending obscene messages through his mobile phone and social networking platforms. The accused has been identified as Avaneesh, a M. Tech engineer and an IITian hailing from Agra in Uttar Pradesh. He was working at a government based electricity company in Mumbai.

The complainant, who hails from Delhi and resides in Koramangala, had lodged a police complaint stating that Avaneesh was sending lewd messages to her mobile number and after she changed the number in 2013, he began posting messages on her Facebook account from a fake ID. The accused and the complainant had studied in IIT, Kanpur, and he was allegedly forcing her to marry him.

 

As she moved to Bengaluru for employment, Avaneesh started harassing her by sending obscene messages through FB and Twitter. Two weeks ago, he had sent a threatening message that he was coming to the city to kill her. The complainant approached the Central division police and provided them details regarding messages sent to her.

On Tuesday, Avaneesh came to Bengaluru and before reaching the city he had sent a message from a fake ID stating that he was in the city and would kill her. The police laid a trap for him. They asked the woman to tell him to meet her on the pretext of discussing about their marriage. When the accused came to meet her at Koramangala on Tuesday, the police arrested him.
