A man has been arrested for using the f-word in an email to a female colleague. 52-year-old man was reportedly taken into custody by Amboli police in Mumbai upon his arrival from United States.
The police, according to a report in Hindustan Times, said that the accused had emailed the complainant and asked her to ‘f**k off’. This incident occurred November last year.
HT reports the lady then registered an FIR with the Amboli police under section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC and section 26 (when employer fails to take action like constituting a committee or contravenes other provisions in the Act) of the sexual harassment of women at workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.
“We learnt that the accused was in the United States. When repeated requests to return to India went ignored, we issued a look-out circular against him. So, we were alerted the moment he landed in Mumbai on Sunday. He has been remanded in judicial custody,” a police officer told HT.
