A security guard has been arrested for allegedly stalking and harassing a 36-year-old NRI woman in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar area.
The complainant, who lives in Australia, has said that she had come to Delhi to visit her home. The incident came to light after she called up Delhi Police’s recently relaunched foreigners’ helpline on Wednesday and reported the matter.
The accused, identified as Pintu, has been arrested under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), a police official said.
The woman told the police that the security guard often used to follow her home in the evenings and on a few occasions he even tried to touch her on the pretext of helping her in closing the main gate of her house premises.
So far, the helpline -- which was relaunched earlier this week following a series of attacks on people from African countries living in the city -- has received over 10 calls on which action has been taken, the police official said.
