CCTV footage helped police arrest two men accused of stalking a woman on Bentinck Street and abusing her with obscene words.
Sources said the jobless duo were on a bike but the victim couldn’t provide the vehicle’s registration number accurately. After trying a series of combinations of the number and the colour of the bike visible in grainy CCTV footage, the police zeroed in on Ajay Jayswata, 21, and Prakash Srivastava, 21. They were picked up from their homes on Tuesday.
The woman in her early 30s was driving a car on Bentinck Street around 4.30pm on Sunday when the two men on a red bike stalked her vehicle and passed lewd comments at her.
She drove up to the cops at the kiosk at the GC Avenue-Bentinck Street crossing. She then reported the incident to Hare Street police station. “The footage from the CCTV camera at the crossing helped us track the bike,” an officer said.
Ajay is a resident of Tallah while Prakash is from Chitpore. The bike belongs to Ajay’s father.
