Mirza Mouzam Baig a Youth Congress leader and advocate from Hyderabad has been arrested by the police on charges of him allegedly stalking and harassing a woman who he had befriended on Facebook.
As per reports, a 33-year-old woman filed a complaint with the Langar Houz Police Station on Sunday alleging that Baig was interfering in her personal life, and sent her vulgar messages on Social Media. This as per the victim was prompted by her refusal to have a sexual relationship with him. This refusal meant that he even started to send vulgar messages to her husband and friends, via his associates Shaik Ahmed Parvez and others.
As a result, a case was lodged against him under Section 354-D and 507 which pertain to stalking and criminal intimidation. He was taken into custody on Monday.
Going by his supposed Facebook profile, Baig calls himself a student leader at the Indian National Congress who worked at Indian Youth Congress:
A former General Secretary at NSUI he seems to have managed to connect with senior Congress leaders like Sonia Gandhi and Digvijaya Singh:
Incidentally, since his arrest, reports have come out which claim that he has now been hospitalised with a stroke and also has multiple abrasions over his body. As per the report, the first hospital where he was admitted stated in its report that there were no obvious external injuries while the second one claimed that there were multiple abrasions over his body and that he suffered a brain stroke.
The family, as a result, has alleged that he was tortured by the police. Baig’s brother claims that a police constable took his brother to the police station at 4:30 PM Sunday, and was taken to the hospital at about 5:00 PM on Monday. He thus claimed that he was beaten up by the police and suffered a brain stroke as a result.
The police though has denied these allegations and inspector M Anjaiah claimed that they received a complaint on Sunday that the woman – an event organiser, used to attend parties with Baig. He later started insisting that she have a physical relationship with him and even issued her death threats.
During the resultant investigation, Baig supposedly didn’t appear at the police station and refused to cooperate saying that he was an advocate. He was finally brought to the police station at 4:30 Monday and formally arrested. There as per the inspector, while giving sureties for his bail application Baig complained of illness and was rushed to Premier Hospital. From there he was shifted to Sai Krishna Super Speciality Hospital by his relatives for better treatment.
The inspector thus insisted the assault charges were baseless and called them as false allegations.
