According to the report of ‘Times of India’, the name of the accused is Rasik Wadalia. He is a resident of Siddhsar village of Jamjodhpur and describes himself as a farmer. On August 4, a first year college student had lodged a police complaint against him. Investigation revealed that Wadalia had targeted three other college going girls besides the complainant.

Wadalia created an Instagram profile with the name Rushi Patel. In the bio, he described himself as a college student. Police said that Wadalia did this after being influenced by some web series seen online. He created a fake profile and also stalked college girls.
