Delhi: Student arrested for stalking air hostess on Instagram
New Delhi : A class 12 student has been arrested by the cops for allegedly stalking, threatening and harassing a 20-year-old woman on social media.

The woman, who is pursuing an air hostess course, filed a complaint against the man who was allegedly stalking her and sharing obscene content on the social media.

Now, since the boy is not 18 year old, he will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board.
