A teenaged girl has filed a case against an unidentified biker for stalking her and giving her a love letter.

The girl did not pay any heed to the letter and put it in her bag.
“When she returned home, her mother found the letter, in which the accused had written, ‘I am the red bike guy who has been following you since long. I wanted to say this to you that ‘I love you’. I love you, very, very much’. Scared, mother and daughter approached the Ghatkopar police station and filed a complaint,” said an officer from Ghatkopar police station.

Officials added that based on the teenager’s description, a sketch had been drawn up, and that they were now hunting for the culprit.
