The police booked Mahesh Murthy on December 29 under IPC sections 354(D) (stalking) and 509 (word or gesture intended to hurt the modesty of a woman) and relevant provisions of the IT Act, based on a complaint of the woman, the official said.
The case was registered by the Khar police as the complainant mentioned that the accused was a resident of Mumbai, he said.
The NCW had earlier written to Maharashtra's Director General of Police regarding the alleged use of objectionable, derogatory and sexual remarks and obscene signs by the investor on social media platforms against the complainant and several other women, the commission said in a press note.
