45-year-old woman outraged the modesty of the director in Mumbai: police
MUMBAI: The police accused a 45-year-old woman of outraging the modesty of a principal in a school in southern Mumbai for her complaint. The 39-year-old director has accused the woman of harassing her and sending messages expressing her love.
The defendant, a Mohammed Ali Road businesswoman, would leave her two nephews at school when she found out about the principal. In 2013, when the principal accompanied high school students on a picnic to Lonavala, she followed the school bus in a private taxi, took photographs of the principal and allegedly touched her inappropriately. She told him in the presence of others that he loved her.
He kept sending text messages, calling the director despite the warning
Later, the defendant began sending food and gifts through mail and delivery at home and school, police said. When the food was returned, the defendant lost her temper. It created an uproar and, once, broke a cup of tea at school, which caused him to complain to the police in 2015. LT Marg police recorded an unrecognizable crime (NC), summoned the defendant and issued a warning .
That year, on Christmas Eve, the defendant again sent the director two boxes of cake and ice cream. When the security of the school refused her entry, she broke through, police said.
In the school function, he took the photos of the principal and pasted them on the bulletin board. Given this, the school filed another complaint from North Carolina.
However, the defendant continued to send the main text messages expressing her affection. He even called her from different phone numbers, causing mental harassment, says the charge sheet.
In 2016, the defendant followed the school bus again while the principal and students headed to Goa for the annual picnic. This time, the director complained at the police station, and the police registered an FIR.
The 64th metropolitan court of first instance requested the public prosecutor to present a compliance report on Tuesday before the start of the trial.
Azad Maidan police informed the court that they had sought a legal opinion before submitting a 50-page charge sheet. An officer said they have strong evidence and have recorded statements from eyewitnesses, including taxi drivers, messengers, the mobile service provider and school staff.
