Man arrested for allegedly harassing Sachin Tendulkar's daughter
Kolkata: Police arrested a man at Mahishadal in East Midnapore district on Sunday morning for allegedly harassing and threatening to kidnap Sara Tendulkar, the daughter of former India cricket captain Sachin Tendulkar.
The arrest was made by a team of Mumbai police in coordination with East Midnapore district police authorities. The name of the arrested person is Debkumar Maity, who is 32.
The Mumbai police team, which got a transit remand from a lower court at Haldia, is taking him to Mumbai for further investigation.
Bhimsen Gaikowar, a member of the Mumbai police team who came to Mahishadal to arrest Maity, said that the accused had made several phone calls to Sara. "He also made several lewd comments during his phone calls and even went to the extent of threatening to kidnap her if she rejected his proposal of marriage," Gaikowar said. The phone calls were made to the landline number at Tendulkar's residence.
A complaint in this regard was filed at the Bandra police station in Mumbai. "We tracked the number, contacted West Bengal police and finally arrested him on Sunday," Gaikowar said.
