Mumbai IT professional, who stalked woman
Mumbai: A day after Varnika Kundu was stalked in Chandigarh, in ‘safe’ Mumbai, comes news of another shocking incident.

On Tuesday, the police arrested the 36-year-old IT professional for stalking the woman, a fashion designer for almost 45 minutes early Monday morning.

The accused identified as Niteshkumar Sharma (36) chased the victim Aditi Nagpaul in a car and followed her up to her first floor flat in Andheri (West) and also rang her doorbell.

When Nagpaul shouted at Sharma he went downstairs and waited in his car and stared at her flat.

Nagpaul posted this on her her Facebook account:

“This is shocking and nerve wrecking!

In the last 10 years, I’ve always felt safe in Bombay, and in the same breath have always cursed Delhi! But last night showed me a different side to my ‘not so safe anymore’ city!

2 women and 2 kids in a car together don’t stop a random man from stalking and following you upto your house and ringing your door bell at 2am!

He dint have any fear in his eyes, a fear of being captured by security cameras, interrogation by security guards or threats of Police! He just hung around coolly in his car long after the incident very comfortable in getting his pictures clicked!

So here they are! Please do circulate and make others aware of this mans possible psychotic streak!

However , a police complaint has been lodged, and I’m awaiting to find out more details on him to take further necessary actions!

But well what a Rakhi! In the end you have to protect your own self…”

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone IX) Paramjit Singh Dahiya told the Times of India that the accused has been booked under the Indian Penal Code section 354 (D) (stalking). He claimed himself an IT professional and hails from Hyderabad and has visited his relatives house at Malad. He also claimed that he came to Mumbai four days ago and was roaming in the city at night. He parked the car he was driving in the basement of the building where the victim stays with his husband and two kids,” said Dahiya.
