Rejection, frustration allegedly led a 28-year-old youth from Karimnagar, pursuing MBA in Australia, to harass his friend by sending e-mails and by posting obscene morphed images of the woman on social networking site. The man was arrested in Karimnagar on Tuesday by Subedari police from Hanamkonda.
K Aravind Kumar, who came to Karimnagar two weeks ago, was allegedly sending vulgar messages to the woman, whom he claims to be in love with.
When the woman’s father lodged a police complaint, they arrested Kumar in Karimnagar and took him to Hanamkonda on Tuesday evening.
The victim’s father alleged that for past few months, his daughter was being harassed by Kumar through mails and twitter messages.
On March 1, Kumar reportedly created a ruckus at the woman’s house and threatened the family with dire consequences if they did not accept his marriage proposal.
Kumar, admitting that he had committed a mistake, claimed that he and the woman were friends since a long time and that he had sent such messages out of frustration of being rejected.
Speaking to Express, Subedari circle inspector V Suresh said Kumar and the victim were classmates in school and had rekindled their friendship after a long time.
Six months ago, the woman had lodged a complaint with cyber crime cell in Hyderabad, stating that Kumar was harassing her through social networking site. But since he was in Australia at that time, police could not arrest him.
A case has been registered against him under Section 506 and 509 of the IPC.
