Delhi University students arrested for allegedly stalking Union minister Smriti Irani

The incident is said to have taken place when Smriti Irani was travelling home to her Chanakyapuri area residence.

The Delhi Police has filed a charge sheet against four Delhi University students for allegedly misbehaving with and stalking union minister Smriti Irani in 2017.

The four youths, identified as Sitanshu, Karan, Avinash and Amit, were booked on charges of stalking, criminal intimidation and intention to insult the modesty of a woman.

The Delhi Police have filed a chargesheet against four people for allegedly stalking Union Minister Smriti Irani a year ago while she was returning to her residence in Chanakyapuri in the national capital from the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

The four men, who are students of the Ram Lal College, were drunk when they started following Irani's auto in Delhi's Lutyens. The students were detained by the police nearly immediately after Smriti Irani dialled 100.

One of the four accused tendered an apology to the union minister. Under Section 354 D (stalking) and Section 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), FIR was filed against the "chasers". They were arrested soon after and released on bail. We didn't realise who was sitting in the vehicle (which the four were following). "I just want to ensure that our lives do not get ruined", said the man.
