BENGALURU: The cyber crime police have so far been unable to track the whereabouts of a person, allegedly harassing a 22-year-old HR executive from the city, 11 days after she filed a complaint with the police.  

According to the complainant, the person harassing her had used several international numbers to send lewd messages, abuse and stalk her for over two months now and had even gone to the extent of messaging her parents and colleagues. 

Initially, the woman started to block each number from where the accused would text her. But the person kept sending messages through different numbers. The woman said, “He demanded a ransom of Rs 40,000 to stop and threatened to leak compromising photos and videos of me. Since there are no such photos or videos in existence, I went to the police as he was harassing me and my parents so much.”
As of now, faced with no concrete action by the police, she has deactivated her WhatsApp and Facebook account.

According to the woman, who initially went to the Electronics City police station, the police asked her to ignore the messages or buy a new SIM card. On her insistence to take action, she was directed to the cyber crime police station, where she filed a complaint on October 15. “The cyber crime police personnel asked me to call the station regularly for an update, but the number they have provided is always unreachable,” the woman said. 

The woman is now being pressurised by her parents to quit her job and return home. “I just want this to stop and for the culprit to be behind bars. I do not know how he got my parents’ and colleagues’ numbers,” the woman, whose parents stay in Cooch Behar district of West Bengal, stated. 

When TNIE spoke to Inspector Yashwant from the cyber crime department, he said that he was unaware of the case details and added that he would need to check up at the station for an update.
