NEW DELHI: Delhi police is struggling in bringing complainants on record in cyber stalking cases. In two separate cases of cyber stalking, where cops claimed that the accused had harassed nearly 1,600 females, police have been able to register one complaint in each case.
Police said they had more than 100 complainants, but no one was ready to file a complaint.
Two separate cases were registered in North-west district in July and September. In first case, Delhi police claimed that accused Mohammed Khalid had harassed 1,500 females, but during investigation it was found that 50 girls were there in his WhatsApp to whom he had sent obscene messages.
Similarly, in another case, shopkeeper Rajesh Gambhir was arrested for sending morphed obscene pictures to more than 50 schoolgirls through WhatsApp. But here also, only one complainant came on record, following which Delhi police filed a charge-sheet.
“During investigation, we tried to get more complainants but either parents or victims themselves didn’t wish to give a complaint in writing. We also found that parents scolded accused and blocked their numbers but didn’t file any complaint with the police. So we had no option but to file a charge-sheet with only one complaint,” a senior police official said.
In the other case also, Police failed to get any complaint apart from one victim who filed a complaint.
“In this case, 50% contacts had blocked the accused’s number but when cops contacted, they refused to file complaints,” official added.
