In a chargesheet filed by the Delhi Police concerning Union Minister Smriti Irani's stalking case, the police have named 4 students from Delhi University for allegedly misbehaving and stalking the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) minister.

The incident is said to have taken place when Smriti Irani was travelling home to her Chanakyapuri area residence.

The four belong to Delhi's Ram Lal College, and were detained the very night after Irani called the Delhi Police control room to lodge a complaint about her auto being followed by the four youngsters.

According to news reports in April 2017, nearly a year ago, the drunk students allegedly followed Irani's vehicle in Delhi.

News agency ANI reported that the Delhi university students were booked on charges of stalking, criminal intimidation and intention to insulting the modesty of a woman.

The Delhi police filed FIR under Section 354 D (stalking) and Section 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). On their way back home, they started chasing down Smriti Irani's auto.

In an interview with ANI, one of the accused apologised to Irani for "violating the law". The students reportedly used "unwanted" words and gestures as well.

One of the accused was later quoted apologising to Irani.
