MUMBAI: A 32-year-old man employed with a private bank has been arrested for allegedly threatening to throw acid on a female colleague’s face. The man, Abhijit Bachelor Singh, a sales executive, was besotted with the woman and had proposed to her, but she had turned down the proposal.
Spurned, Singh wanted to get even with the woman, police said. An officer said that the woman started receiving threat calls and letters at the workplace around February. The caller [Singh] demanded that she cough up Rs 15 lakh, failing which he threatened to fling acid at her and her mother, said the officer. The calls traumatized her to such an extent that she stopped leaving her home and, for some time, even stopped attending office.
The police said that most of the calls were made from public phones. Singh used to place a kerchief on the mouthpiece so that his voice would not be recognized, said the officer.
Senior inspector Sunil Jadhav said that during one such call, Singh threatened the woman that he would malign her reputation by morphing nude photos with her face.
