The Facebook post by a girl in which she narrated the harrowing experience of being followed by a youth on scooter while walking along the road has led to the arrest of the culprit. Rizwan (29), the owner of the scooter and a resident of Jeppu near here, was arrested on Friday, police said.

The police, who had taken a suo motu case based on the Facebook post, had traced the scooter owner from the picture of the number plate the girl had posted on Facebook.

The girl, Rashmi Shetty, had put up the post on June 25 about the man who stalked her on broad daylight as she was walking through a prime area in the city. The post had gone viral in the social media.

    He held and released news will be there, because he is from minority and girl is belonging to Hindu. So this case there is no strong proof to keep this person in jail, and now one congress minister also from Mangalure he will do the necessary things to release that person soon.
