Hello Ma'am

Really sorry to hear that but there is no need to panic. Believing that you reside within the territorial boundaries of Delhi, I would request you to kindly call the Anti-Stalking Helpline at 1096 or Woman Helpline at 1091. Just narrate your complaint to the attendant, and share as much information as possible about the stalker (like his phone number, name, address; Facebook may prove handy in finding out such details). Your complaint will be dealt with professionally and in a time bound manner.You do not have to visit any police station or meet anyone. Your identity will be kept secret.
Believe me, in more than 99% cases, a stringent warning in the form of a call or visit from an officer of the nearest Police Station is enough to send the message across that repetition of such an act would lead to dire consequences and thereby invaribly puts an end to such uncalled-for behaviour by the accused.

Hope this helps!
Do contact me if you need any further assistance/information.
