He later took revenge by sending Mr Prabhu and his family sex toys.
A bizarre police case is underway after an angry Indian employee sent sex toys to his boss and his family in an act of revenge. The incident happened in Bengaluru, Karnataka.
In addition, the frustrated worker also shared his employer’s contact details on online sites for escort services.
The worker was identified as Hariprasad Joshi while his boss was Avinash Prabhu, director of coffee producer Kalmane Trading Private Limited.
Mr Prabhu approached the police on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, to register a complaint.
It was reported that Joshi had been asking Mr Prabhu to clear his Provident Fund (PF) dues, however, he would refuse, citing the Coronavirus pandemic as the reason.
Mr Prabhu had refused to clear Joshi’s PF because allegedly, the firm had “temporarily stopped functioning” owing to the pandemic.
The complainant also told police that the previous business head had not submitted all the relevant documents.
However, Joshi continued to contact his boss over the PF issue. As a result, the two would get into arguments over the phone.
Reportedly, Mr Prabhu refused the payment and dared his employee to do whatever he wanted.
Joshi became angry with his boss and started harassing him with calls and emails.
He later took revenge by sending Mr Prabhu and his family sex toys. He also uploaded his contact details on escort websites.
In his complaint, Mr Prabhu said:
“But he sent abusive mails to me, my wife and children.”
“He posted mobile numbers of me and my wife on dating websites and placed orders for pornographic material in me and my wife’s name.”
While police know what the Indian employee did, they do not yet know how long he has been working for Mr Prabhu and when he placed a request for the PF amount.
When contacted, Mr Prabhu refused to provide more details about Joshi.
Police registered a case against Joshi and booked him under various sections of the IT Act as well as sections 419 (punishment for cheating by personation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman).
Police hope to obtain more information once they have located and arrested Joshi.
A police officer said: “We found the mobile number from which Mr Prabhu had received calls. We will get more details once we nab the suspect.”
