A Hindu girl was stalked by a Muslim employee of a Maruti Suzuki showroom in Madhya Pradesh’s (MP) Ujjain. As per available information, the employee threatened the girl with an acid attack after she turned down his request to chat. The accused employee has been identified as Shoaib.
The employee had obtained the girl’s number from the job card of the showroom where she had left her vehicle for servicing. He then messaged her at around 12 in the night but she refused to entertain him. Angered by this, the employee threatened to throw acid on her. The frightened girl then approached the VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) for help.
Subsequently, an FIR (First Information Report) was filed with the help of VHP at Ujjain’s Madhav Nagar Police Station under Section 154 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). A case (FIR number 0197 dated April 19) has been registered against the accused under IPC (Indian Penal Code) Sections 354 & 354G (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 341 (wrongful restraint), and 506 (criminal intimidation).
Such brazen data theft puts females at risk and both the police as well as the company must take stringent measures to ensure that such incidents aren’t repeated.
