Mumbai: In a shocking incident, a resident of Napean Sea Road in Mumbai received an online shopping parcel from an unknown person at her home. The contents of the parcel included a condom, lingerie, and a sex toy. The sender allegedly even called the girl repeatedly and sexually harassed her. The girl and her mother then approached the Malabar Hill police station and registered a complaint against the unknown sender.
According to the police, the parcel was sent through an e-commerce store that specialised in lifestyle and beauty products. The accused's mobile number has been traced, and a hunt is on for the accused.
"We have registered an offence under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) section of molestation (354,A) and stalking (354, D) and section 12 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO)," said an officer.
"Since the accused knew the victim's address and her mobile number, the possibility of the person being known to the victim cannot be ruled out. However, he could have also traced her using social media," said an officer from Malbar Hill police station.
