NEW DELHI: A first year Delhi University student has been arrested for allegedly creating fake IDs, and stalking and harassing women on the social media, police said on Sunday.
The accused has been identified as 23-year-old Mohammad Kafil, a resident of Mehrauli in south Delhi. Kafil works as a part-timer at his father’s shop.
Police said that the accused used to borrow hotspots from random people on false pretexts or used others’ Wi-Fi to stalk and harass women. He also did not use his own internet to create the false IDs.
The cops started the probe after a woman complained of obscene and abusive messages on Facebook from an account in the name of one Karan. “An FIR of impersonation, stalking, giving threats and outraging a woman’s modesty was registered. The Cyber Cell of Delhi Police was asked to track the man,” said deputy commissioner of police (south) Atul Kumar Thakur.
The team analysed the internal protocol (IP) details records to zero in on the suspect. Other details like phone numbers used to create the accounts were also investigated. After acquiring some clues about his identity, police traced the accused’s location to Mehrauli and arrested him.
“During interrogation, Kafil confessed to the crime and said that he was fond of sending women obscene messages and created IDs under fake names for that purpose,” DCP Thakur added. The accused’s mobile phone has been seized for analysis. The cops are trying to ascertain the number of women harassed by the man.
