What a girl/woman should do when stalked.Stalking is a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly, unwantedly, and disruptively breaks into the life-world of the victim, with whom he has no relationship (or no longer has), with motives that are directly or indirectly traceable to the affective sphere. Moreover, the separated acts that make up the intrusion cannot by themselves cause the mental abuse, but do take together (cumulative effect).
Have you undergone the awful experience of being stalked? It doesn't matter if you're a college student, a working professional, or a housewife — many women in India get chased regularly. Most of the time, the perpetrators hang around in the neighbourhood, outside offices and schools, etc.
Why is it that some women chose to ignore their stalkers instead of approaching the police? It is usually because they are intimidated by the thought of approaching the police or feel that the police will not help.
Girls/Women who are being stalked can complain to the National Commission for Women (NCW) and the Commission will take the matter up with the police. Any woman, in any part of India, can file this complaint to 0111-23219750. The Commission asks the police to then expedite the investigation. In serious cases, the commission forms an inquiry committee, which makes a spot inquiry, examines witnesses, collects evidence, etc. The Commission also has powers to summon the accused, the witnesses and police records, to facilitate the inquiry.
