According to media reports, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against a man who has been stalking him.
In the papers filed in court, the Facebook founder claims 31-year-old Pradeep Manukonda has tried to “follow, surveil and contact Mr. Zuckerberg using language threatening his personal safety”, as well as that of his girlfriend and his sister.
The court papers also talk about Facebook security intercepting Pradeep at Zuckerberg’s home on January 24 “just as he (Mark) was about to walk up the front steps.”
In addition, TMZ reports Pradeep tried to contact Mark to ask for money for his family through several Facebook offices in Palo Alto.
Pradeep received a verbal warning from police officers but Zuckerberg claims he continued to try to contact him through the mail or by sending flowers to his home with a hand-written letter.
