Stalker arrested for attacking girl`s parents
New Delhi: Police arrested a stalker on Tuesday, who barged into a house in Jyoti Nagar area in North East Delhi and shot at a property dealer and beat up his wife after their daughter spurned his advances.
22-year-old Pushpendra was arrested by Delhi Police from Uttar Pradesh`s Budaun district, police said.
Pushpendra, who was allegedly stalking the girl for four years, yesterday barged into her house and shot at her 52-year-old father with a country-made pistol and beat up her mother with a piece of wood.
The couple`s 20-year-old daughter was saved as she had locked herself up in a room.
The accused was spurned by the Jains` daughter whom he had been stalking since they broke up four years ago.
The family of the girl had changed addresses several times in recent years to escape their daughter`s alleged stalker. Recently, they had shifted from Balbir Nagar to Jyoti Nagar.
