A 24-year-old senior MNC executive has alleged that she was molested and physically assaulted by her friend after she rejected his proposal of marriage. Police said a case has been registered at Chanakyapuri police station. The woman resides in the staff quarters of the Embassy of Sweden.
Police said the incident came to light after the woman and her mother, who works with the Swedish Embassy, approached police. “The woman told police that her friend had constantly threatened and stalked her for the past three months,” a senior police officer said. Sources also said that the accused had accessed her Facebook account and had posted obscene pictures on it.

“The accused has been stalking her for the past three months, but the woman objected to his behaviour only a few days ago. He then molested and thrashed her and also threatened her of dire consequences if she did not accept his proposal,” the officer said.
“After hacking her Facebook account, he started posting obscene pictures on her profile and also sent some of the pictures to her friends. The woman came to know about this after she got several phone calls from her friends who informed her about the pictures,” the officer added.
Police said, initially, the woman said nothing to her family but finally told her mother. “She told her mother that the friend had hacked her Facebook account and also threatened to kill her if she informed anyone about the incident,” the woman’s mother told police in her complaint.
