Anoushka stalker held in Mumbai

Anoushka Sharma

Twenty-nine-year old Junaid Khan, who hails from Thane, allegedly used some of the photographs of the young sitarist to blackmail her, police said on Sunday.

Khan was picked up from Mumbai on Tuesday by Delhi Police’s Special Cell after investigations into a complaint filed by Ravi Shankar last month alleging that his 28-year-old daughter was being blackmailed by someone, a senior police official said. He was produced in a city court last week which first sent him to five days’ police custody and on Saturday to 14-days judicial remand.

Sources said Khan appeared to have known Anoushka for the past sometime and had been following her concerts. “He had even sent threatening mails and text messages to her from outside the country demanding money. The first mail and text message were sent from Dubai when he was there,” the official said, adding they found this after examining the internet protocol address as well as GPRS connection through which these mails were sent.

A spokesperson for Anoushka said she was not willing to comment as of now as investigation was on. In his complaint, Ravi Shankar is learnt to have claimed that Anoushka had given her laptop to a service centre in south Delhi in February.
