Media reports quoted the girl's father as saying the suspect lived nearby in their village in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh and that he had been harassing his daughter for a year despite several warnings.

Women's rights activists accuse police of often overlooking complaints of stalking, which they say only emboldens the perpetrators.
