Hyderabad: An engineering student was arrested today for allegedly harassing his former classmate by sending her abusive emails and messages for turning down his love proposal, police said.

A Rajkumar was arrested from Gachibowli area and on interrogation he revealed that he had proposed the girl while they were studying in the final year of BTech course in a college here, but she spurned him.

“He had failed some subjects in BTech and was preparing for the exams. Recently, Rajkumar got information that his former classmate had got engaged with another person and he decided to harass her,” a release from Cyberabad Police stated.
