The Mumbai police responded immediately after Shruti Hassan filed a molestation complaint on an unidentified source who tried to attack her at her residence in Mumbai. In connection with the incident the Mumbai police arrested a spot boy for stalking and trespassing of Shruti Hassan’s private property.
Based on the CCTV footage of the building and the statement given by Shruti Hassan, the intruder was identified as Ashok Shankar Trimukhe - a spot boy in Film City. He was earlier seen on her sets on a few occasions and in the past had even tried to enter her van.
However, the accused has a different story. He claims to have visited Shruti’s residence seeking a job for his brother and it was Shruti who got scared and banged the door on him. He claims that he had no intentions of harming her.
Whatever it might be, it is a warning to all those single girls living away from home.
