This kind of stalking is a situation where in the victim is stalked by an acquaintance or by a person whom they have never met.   Why is it being introduced? Due to rise of social media, stalking has become much easier, as the stalker can get information about their object of obsession. There was no legal definition of stalking. After two specific criminal offences were introduced by the Crown Prosecution Service on 25th November, 2012, there was some clarity on this.
