Woman accused of insulting cyber-stalker
Both parties have been charged with insulting behaviour, case has been adjourned
British businesswoman Amarjit Kaur Dhadli, who lodged complaints against a cyber-stalker, is now facing charges of insulting the stalker, according to 7Days.
The 35-year-old American computer engineer, Qasem Ali, apparently bombarded the 44-year-old Dhadli with lewd emails and messages on Facebook, after seeing her profile on the site.
Dhadli says Ali sent her messages asking her to be his slave and indulge in a series of indecent acts. The woman, who is married, rejected his advances and lodged a complaint with the police.
Police have confirmed that Ali sent the woman suggestive messages.
"She complained about emails in which the defendant asked to have sex with her," the officer said. "She refused and said she was a married woman. Then he started insulting her."
The police asked Dhadli to help them with a sting operation to catch the cyber-stalker.
"We told her to carry on her communication with him. He asked to meet at a nightclub in the Marina, where we arrested him," the policeman said.
Under questioning Ali, of Pakistani descent alleged that Dhadli, of Indian descent, had insulted him during their Facebook exchanges.
"He claims she asked him to send her photos and when she saw the pictures, she said she didn't like Indian men. He told her he was not Indian and then insulted her. They both started swearing at each other via Facebook," the policeman said.
Police have arrested both parties and they have both been charged with insulting behaviour. Ali has pleaded guilty, while Dhadli failed to appear in court to face the charges. The case has now been adjourned. The offence carries a maximum jail term of six months.
