Actress Sonarika Bhadoria, popularly known for playing Parvati in the TV show ‘Devon ke Dev Mahadev’ has got her harasser arrested. The man is a 23- year- old student from Maharashtra’s Naxalite area, Kurkheda and he had been harassing the actress since the last seven – eight months. The accused has been identified as Swapnil Sahare (23), as reported in DNA. While speaking to the leading daily, Sonarika said “He was repeatedly messaging me and calling me since 7-8 months. I was fed up and scared by seeing his messages. When I blocked his number he used other numbers to contact me. He used at least 25 numbers to contact me. When I switched off my phone for few days, he started calling my relatives and father. Initially, I ignored but in February I approached the police and filed a complaint.”
“After registering the complaint we tracked him by using the tower location of Kurkheda. During interrogation he said he was in love with Bhandari and wanted to marry her,” said Suryakant Kharat, Assistant police Inspector of Kurar police Station.
The reports further states that Swapnil is a First-year Bachelors of Arts student in a college in Kurkheda and belongs to a poor family. He fell madly in love with the Sonarika and used a software to get her number and contacted her. He managed to acquire her number in October last year and that’s when he started sending obscene, intimate messages to her. Upon getting hold of his Call Data Records (CDR) the police arrested the accused from his village and brought him to Mumbai on Wednesday. He was produced in court and remanded in police custody till May 1, the official added.
