CHANDIGARH: Barely over a week after the incident of stalking of an IAS officer's daughter here, another woman has complained of being chased by three men in a car.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that while returning home from market in a two-wheeler she was chased by three men in a car from Sector 36 till Sector 40 here last night, the police said today.

"The men started chasing her after she bought some fruits from the market," Chandigarh Police Deputy Superintendent of Police, Deepak Yadav said.

The woman, who belonged to Hisar and has been staying here as a paying guest, noted down the vehicle's number and informed the police, the DSP said.

A case has been registered on her complaint under section 341 (wrongful restraint), 354D (stalking), and section 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC, the DSP said.

"We will soon apprehend the accused," he said.

Earlier, on August 5, a 29-year-old disc jockey and daughter of a senior IAS officer was allegedly stalked by the son of Haryana BJP chief and his friend.

Meanwhile, a girl lodged a complaint on Monday night with the police that three youth in a white car stalked her in Sector 36 and continued to chase her till her house in sector 40 while she was on her way home. She alleges that they tried to grab her and push her into their car but she somehow managed to reach home and alert police. A case was registered for stalking and stopping the way but charges of kidnapping are yet to be put.
