Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against a man who has been stalking him for quite some time on both his social network and in person.
Pradeep Manukonda has been ordered by the courts to not to come within 300 yards of Zuckerberg, his girlfriend Priscilla Chan and his sister Randi Zuckerberg, TMZ reports.
Manukonda had tried to contact the trio both on Facebook and in person, reportedly in excess of 20 times a day, begging them for financial help. He had also allegedly threatened their safety. Manukonda has even pledged his life to Zuckerberg's service if the CEO helped him out.
Apparently Manukonda need money to help pay for medical treatment for his sick mother.
In a hand written letter sent to Zuckerberg, Manukonda wrote: “Thank you for your valuable time and attention towards my problem. I am indeed very grateful to you. If I get a chance to work with you in the near future it would be my honour. I know I am working with a man of values. Thank you for being a source of inspiration to all of us.”
