According to reports, the accused used multiple SIM cards and made those calls on fake names. After each such call, he destroyed the SIM card and switched to another SIM to continue to call and harass the same women. Police said that the accused has been doing this illegal activity for the last one year now and had contacted 35 women in just one month and sent them vulgar text messages as well. Out of fear, many victims stopped using their mobile phones or switched to a new number. Police are now investigating as to how the accused managed to get such a large number of SIM cards.
