Mark Zuckerberg

Alleged Stalker Claims

FB CEO Attacked Him

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Zuckerberg's alleged stalker -- who had to leave the U.S. last year -- is now trying to turn the tables with a defamation lawsuit which claims Zuck tried to have him killed.

As TMZ first reported, Zuckerberg obtained a restraining order against Pradeep Manukonda back in February 2011, after Manukonda allegedly sent Zuck threatening messages, and showed up at his home. Manukonda eventually agreed to return to his native India.

Now Manukonda has filed suit in an Indian court against Zuckerberg and a local politician -- claiming they're responsible for multiple attacks against him ... including one where he was "stabbed from the back side."

In the suit, Manukonda also accuses Zuckerberg of making a fake Facebook page (see below) that says he's a member of al-Qaeda.

Shockingly, a judge issued a court order back in February barring Zuckerberg from doing anything that damages Manukonda's reputation.

The whole case sounds far-fetched, but Pradeep says a hearing is scheduled next week in India.

Facebook declined to comment.

i had heard of pradeep when i was in US. Since then i have few questions running in mind
why was the stalking case againt pradeep never went for the Trial?
what made Mark to make the case settle outside the court?
and i would also like to know if all of a sudden your photo appear in facebook with some other name and portray you as a anti social element or psychopath etc what would be your reaction?
Recently there was news in BBC that there are around 83Million fake accounts in facebook . As an IT professional based on such huge no of fake accounts I can definitely say that these accounts are not created by any one or many individuals unless there is something fishy happening at the face book site

We must give Applause for the courage shown by pradeep and decide to confront with Facebook Menace, Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying “I WILL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW” keeps rocking and let the world know about the Indian talent

I don't doubt that Zuckerberg had the page made. He has a history of trying to destroy people, or did you forget why Facebook was started in the first place . . .
