Rohit Sharma, 28, faces deportation back to India at the end of his sentence for stalking, harassment and failing to appear at court

A stalker who started a campaign of harassment after asking a woman to marry him hours after she served him in a shop was jailed for two years and faces deportation to India. 

Rohit Sharma, 28, made the shop worker's life hell for 18 months, bombarding her with up to 40 phone calls a day from 15 different numbers as well as texting and contacting her on social media and watching her at work.

Sharma was jailed for a total of two years and five months at Isleworth Crown Court after pleading guilty to stalking, harassment and failing to appear at court - and faces deportation back to India at the end of his sentence.

He began stalking his victim, who was aged in her 20s, after she served him in a shop in Wembley, north west London, in November 2017, the court heard.

Following their brief encounter, Sharma returned later that same day with his father and asked her to marry him.

The woman changed jobs four days later, but Sharma found out where she worked and managed to obtain her phone number.

His behaviour escalated and he bombarded her with multiple messages via phone, text and social media.

The woman reported Sharma to the police and he was issued with a harassment warning in Feburary last year, but he was undeterred, continuing his campaign of stalking.
