Frustrated man sends lewd messages & videos to 1500 women, arrested
Delhi police on Thursday arrested a 31-year-old man for allegedly tormenting over 1500 women by sending them obscene messages and videos via WhatsApp. The man was apparently annoyed over not getting married.
While examining the mobile phones used by the accused, cops stumbled upon contacts over 1500 women, who were put through trauma and mental agony. The accused had phone numbers of over 2000 women living in and around the Delhi NCR.
The accused, Mohammad Khalid, was arrested in connection with the complaint filed by a woman at Delhi’s Ashok Vihar police station on May 30. Police found all obscene messages and video clips sent by the Khalid to his victims, stored in the mobile phones. It also included his messages to the complainant from Ashok Vihar.
During interrogation, Khalid confessed that he used to make random calls on Delhi NCR mobile numbers. If the call was received by a woman or girl, he would save their details and check their profile pictures on WhatsApp. If he found them attractive, he would send them vulgar messages and obscene video clips via the messaging app.
While investigating the case, police found out that the accused would use two separate numbers to send messages, but their addresses turned out to be fake. When they reached Sadar Bazar area, from where the SIM cards were purchased and often recharged, investigation led them to Khalid.
Initially, Khalid denied his involvement. But after he was confronted with facts, he confessed to sending the messages. Most of his victims refrained from filing a complaint against him as they feared disclosing their identity.
Khalid would used the SIM cards, purchased with fake IDs, exclusively for sending lewd messages and video clips. He told police that he was unmarried and was frustrated as his friends had got married and were having children.
There were multiple complaints registered against Khalid in Gurgaon, Uttam Nagar, Ashok Vihar and Usmanpur areas. A few others had also lodged a complaint by calling the women helpline numbers.
