What are the grounds on which it will be termed as stalking


A person created a facebook profile to expose the previous affairs and lies of a husband. He chatted with the person's wife who equally showed interest to know details. He messaged the husband to beware of his actions. No abuse or vulgar words used. After two three days of chat which was on stating evidences about the husband s character, he deleted the account. Can he be jailed for this?
