On Wednesday, the Khar police arrested a 35-year-old man for allegedly stalking a TV actress from Taj Lands End hotel to Khar Road.

According to Mid-Day, the accused was identified as 25-year-old Abdul Munaf Shaikh who claimed to be a resident of Dharavi. The incident took place on Wednesday when the actress was on her way to attend a wedding reception at the Taj Lands End hotel. The actress told the cops that Shaikh was following her and when she stopped her car, the accused would stop his car behind her.

The actress told the leading daily, “From Bandstand to Carter Road, the police were following him and hence he stopped his car slightly farther away. He even tried to overtake me at one point, while staring at me. After speaking to the police, we took him to the Khar police station and filed an FIR.”  The Khar police have arrested Abdul Shaikh under IPC sections 354 (D) (stalking) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman).
