What If A Man Sends The Text Messages To A Woman Who Clearly Shows Disinterest Towards Him?





Any man who monitors the use by a woman of the internet, email or any other form of electronic communication repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman; commits the offence of stalking under Section 354(D) of Indian Penal Code,1860.

So, If A Man Sends The Text Messages To A Woman Who Clearly Shows Disinterest Towards Him can be held liable for stalking as it is clearly given under section 354(D) of Indian Penal Code,1860. Here, the text messages come under "any other form of electronic communication".




Stalking is unwanted and/or repeated surveillance by an individual or group toward another person. Stalking behaviours are interrelated to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them. The term stalking is used with some differing definitions in psychiatry and psychology, as well as in some legal jurisdictions as a term for a criminal offence.


In 2013, Parliament made amendments to the Indian Penal Code, introducing stalking as a criminal offence. A man committing the offence of stalking would be liable for imprisonment up to three years for the first offence, and shall also be liable to fine and for any subsequent conviction would be liable for imprisonment up to five years and with fine.
