Metropolitan Magistrate Snigdha Savaria on Tuesday took cognisance of a charge sheet filed by police against four Delhi University students who allegedly misbehaved and stalked Union minister Smriti Irani in April previous year.

The incident happened previous year while she was returning home in Chanakyapuri from Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport.

The four accused are students of Ram Lal Anand college, under Delhi University, who were in an inebriated state at the time, according to the police.

They were later detained for allegedly stalking and outraging the modesty of a woman and set free on bail. 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), FIR was filed against the "chasers". "They were returning from a friend's birthday party in south Delhi and were roaming in the area for fun", the police had said. Later, she filed a formal complaint and the police booked charges against the students.

"We were dancing inside our vehicle and were making a video for Instagram". The accused had tested positive for alcohol during a medical checkup.

They even tried to overtake her vehicle. The students, between the ages of 18 and 19 years, used "unwanted" words and gestures as well. "We apologise for whatever happened", one of them had said.
