Attracted to a woman he saw on the street while returning from a pub, a city lawyer decided to follow her. He parked the car on the side and followed her three storeys to her house and then to the terrace.
And then he walked straight off the terrace in panic when the woman raised an alarm, suffering multiple fractures.
Forgetting he had reached the terrace to ask her out under the influence of alcohol, the lawyer rushed in the wrong direction and landed on the ground. He is in AIIMS Trauma Center with fractured arms, legs and broken teeth.
The incident was reported from southeast Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar area on Friday night. A case of trespass and stalking has been registered against the lawyer.
According to the police, the lawyer was on his way home to Noida, when he spotted a 22-year-old Nigerian student taking a walk outside her house. He reportedly took a U-turn and parked the car in the area. The lawyer then walked up to her. But before he could approach her, she went inside the house.
“He was so drunk that he could not even look straight. He did not realise what he was doing. When the woman went inside the house, he went behind her. The woman said she went to the terrace to get some fresh air and was shocked to see a man following her,” an investigator said.
“The woman initially thought that he was a visitor and must be going to someone’s house in the building but she got scared when he approached her.”
The lawyer allegedly told the woman that she was very beautiful and he wanted her to accompany him. The woman raised an alarm as the lawyer charged towards her trying to hold her hand. She told him she would call the police.
“The moment the woman mentioned ‘police’ , the lawyer panicked and started looking for the way to exit. He forgot that he climbed three floors while stalking the woman. Thinking that he was on the ground floor and mistaking the balcony door as the exit, he fell from the third floor and landed straight on the ground,” an investigator told HT.
The police rushed him to the hospital. “He sustained multiple fractures in his legs, arms, jaw and back. We are waiting for him to be fit for statement,” a senior police officer said.
