The 41-year-old software employee, and the businesswoman, aged 25, were arrested yesterday from Moulali on charge of cyberstalking, Rachakonda Commissioner of Police Mahesh M Bhagwat said. The accused woman was a business partner of the software professional. Both were staying in the same apartment complex as the victim, who worked as an assistant professor at a private college here. The accused committed the offence due to some dispute between the families of the software professional and the victim, the commissioner said.
