The resolution is to file a criminal complaint, as mentioned in my previous reply. If the offence is proved the accused will have to face imprisonment which may be for up to 2 years.

Hello Rohit,

The person can be booked under various Cognizable offences of IPC and once booked arrest is confirmed. 

As a solution the accused need to apply for anticipatory bail if the FIR is registered, or quashing of fir if the accused have proofs claiming the FIR to be false.

Best of Luck

girl may file a criminal complaint under section 354A of IPC against the men.

this is a bailable offence and the men will get bail easily as a right.

fight the case on merit or try to settle the matter with her if she file the same, this is a compoundable offence.

The girl can lodge a complaint with the local police or cyber police showing the lewd messages sent by the person to her.

The police will inquire into the incidents and punish him if found guilty.

and what is the resolution to the problem.?

There is no resolution. You can get relief from police only or you can file a private complaint before court seeking relief against the culprit for his undesirable activities against you.
