Three arrested for allegedly stalking U.S. woman

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, MARCH 21. Three young men, who were allegedly stalking a 28-year-old woman tourist from the United States at Connaught Place in New Delhi, were arrested by a Police Control Room (PCR) team and the local police this evening. The accused were in an inebriated state.

According to the police, it was around 6 p.m. that the woman and her husband while coming out of Marina Hotel noticed that three youth were following them under mysterious circumstances. The miscreants also allegedly passed some lewd remarks in Hindi, whose meaning the couple could not understand.

Suspecting that they were in trouble, the couple panicked and started looking for a safe place. It was then that the husband spotted a PCR van passing by. He immediately signalled to the police personnel and narrated the whole incident to them. The PCR team subsequently informed the local police and with their help gave a chase to the miscreants and arrested them. The miscreants - who were allegedly drunk - were taken to hospital for medical examination.

During interrogation, the accused identified themselves as Imran, Raisudeen and Mohammad Iqbal. The police are trying to verify their residential addresses. While they plan to inform their parents about their activities, they have booked the accused under relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code.

The incident comes days after a 59-year-old Australian woman was allegedly murder by a pre-paid taxi driver and his accomplice after being robbed of her belongings.

Two held on betting charges

A garment exporter and a property dealer were arrested by the Crime Branch of Delhi police in the Malviya Nagar area of South Delhi this evening for running a satta racket on the India-Pakistan cricket match.

The Crime Branch team, led by Inspector Ran Singh, raided the B-10 Shivalik Apartments premises of the accused while the match was on. Subsequently, they found the accused, house-owner and Lucknawi kurta exporter, 47-year-old Kamal Kumar, and 29-year property dealer, Pawan Kumar, taking bets on the match in the premises.

Besides a sum of Rs. 3,260 in cash, the police also recovered two mobile phones, four landlines with caller identification facility, two books containing details of bets worth Rs. 9 lakhs, one pager, two calculators and a Videocon television from the premises.
