"I saw her on TV sitting at the pavilion during a match and fell in love...I want to marry her. I fetched the landline number of Tendulkar and have called on it some 20 times...Have never seen her in person," Debkumar Maity, who has been as identified as the stalker, said as per a India Today report.

The accused will likely be taken to Mumbai on transit remand on Sunday after being produced at the Haldia court.

Sara had filed a complaint at the Bandra Police Station after which the police nabbed the accused, who hails from Mahishadal.

However, the accused's family however, has said that the man is mentally unstable.

"We had no idea how he got embroiled in this case. Even at home he used to torture his parents. He lost his father recently. He has been undergoing medical treatment for his condition for last eight years," one of the relatives was quoted as saying.

A diary from his home has been recovered in which the accused has scribbled Sara's name.

The accused will undergo a medical test to determine if he is mentally stable or not. The police hasn't yet been able to pinpoint as to how the man got the number of Tendulkar's house.
