Using a stranger’s cellphone after her own phone ran out of battery proved to be costly for a 25-year-old woman, after the “good samaritan” started sending her obscene text messages. The woman finally approached the police and the culprit was arrested earlier this month.
According to the Vakola police, the suspect has been identified as Mohammed Asim Sheikh (35), a resident of Antop Hill who repairs refrigerators and air-conditioners for a living.
The police said the victim and Sheikh were travelling on the same train in December this year, which was when she borrowed his cellphone in order to make a call.
“The victim was on her way to Goa with some of her friends, and her cellphone ran out of battery, after which she asked Sheikh, who was in the same compartment, if she could use his phone. Sheikh readily agreed and the
victim made a call to her friend, after which she returned Sheikh’s phone to him. Some days later, Sheikh called up the friend and talked her into revealing the victim’s number.

He then started sending her text messages around 15 days ago,” said senior inspector Vinayak Mule of Vakola police station.
The victim initially ignored Sheikh’s messages, but when they kept growing bolder with each passing day, she finally approached the police and a complaint was registered against Sheikh under the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
“We traced Sheikh through his cellphone number and picked him up from his Antop Hill residence. He was arrested on April 19 and is currently in judicial custody,” Mule added.
