Sara Tendulkar, daughter of former India batsman and current Rajya Sabha MP Sachin Tendulkar was reportedly harassed by a man over the phone. The man called at the residence of Tendulkar and reportedly harassed Sara.
Tendulkar reported the matter to Bandra police and they have arrested 32 year old Debkumar Maity, with help from Kolkata police in Kolkata on Sunday. He somehow got hold of Sachin’s landline phone at his residence and used to call and harass Sara. Mumbai police caught the accused and the accused reportedly claimed that he loved Sara and would like to marry her.
"I saw her on tv sitting at the pavilion during a match and fell in love...I want to marry her. I fetched the landline number of Tendulkar and have called on it some 20 times...Have never seen her in person," Debkumar Maity told police.
The man had even threatened to kidnap Sara and made lewd comments about her. However, the family of accused have said that the man is mentally unstable and is a college dropout.
Police have recovered a diary from Maity in which he has scribbled Sara's name and proclaimed his love for her.
Maiti will be brought down to Mumbai for further investigation.
