Hyderabad: An advocate was arrested by 'SHE Teams' of police for allegedly harassing a woman from Delhi by sending her abusive and vulgar messages, police said on Wednesday.
Accused M Abhishek and his friends had unsuccessfully tried to strike communication with the woman who had come to attend a programme at Gachibowli here last month, Additional Commissioner of Police (Crimes and SIT) Swati Lakra said.
However, when she did not respond, they took her business card from other persons and since then Abhishek allegedly started sending her text messages asking her to respond and make friends with him, Lakra said.
"As the victim was not responding to his messages, he continuously started sending her abusive and vulgar messages asking her to respond to him and enjoy the attention she is receiving," the officer said.
She then informed the matter to her friends, who in turn called up the advocate asking him not to harass her.
"She also requested him to stop sending messages as she was not interested in him. But, he did not stop and further started threatening her saying he will come to her place personally if she does not accept his friendship," Lakra said.
The woman then submitted a complaint to "SHE Teams", the unit tasked with cracking down on eve-teasers and stalkers, and a case was registered and Abhishek arrested after investigation, she said.
