NEW DELHI: A 31-year-old serial stalker, who sent obscene and vulgar messages to more than 1,500 girls in Delhi and the national capital region, was arrested on Wednesday, police said.

The woman stated that she received obscene pictures and vulgar texts from two different numbers. When she called the number, the caller threatened to upload her number and picture that he got from her Watsapp profile on porn websites. Following the complaint, the Delhi Police procured details of the mobile numbers, but it was found that they were obtained using fake ids. Thereafter, on the basis of surveillance, the police zeroed in on the suspect.

“The accused was arrested from Sadar Bazar area where he runs a shop along with his father.  When confronted, he tried to bluff the police, but later on confessed to his offence.  The two mobile phones that he used were recovered,” Vijay Singh, Deputy Commissioner of police, said.  The numbers of nearly 2,000 women were recovered from the phones.

“He would randomly dial a number. If the caller turned out to be a female, he would save the number and later check out her WhatsApp profile picture. He would then send obscene clips and vulgar texts to them,” he added.

Fearing that the accused would misuse the pictures, the victims were apprehensive of filing police compliants. “He also threatened to upload the women’s mobile numbers and morphed pictures on social media sites. Despite being warned several times by several victims, the accused continued sending vulgar content because he was sure he would not be caught since he obtained the SIM cards on the basis of fake ids,” Singh added.
