An Indian Guy Claims to Have Been Stabbed by Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg’s alleged stalker, Pradeep Manukonda, is filing a counter-lawsuit against Zuckerberg, accusing the Facebook founder of attempting to kill him. Apparently Manukonda still cannot accept the fact that he was sent home to India by his idol last year after being accused of following, surveiling, and contacting Mr. Zuckerberg using language that was threatening to Zuckerberg’s personal safety.

It all started in February 2011, when Mr. Zuckerberg filed a restraining order against 31 years old Pradeep Manukonda after the obsessed fan bombarded him and his sister Randi Zuckerberg with online messages, sent him flowers, and even turned up at his home. As reported by TMZ, Manukonda is said to have attempted to visit Mark Zuckerberg in his office in Palo Alto several times to ask money for his family. On January 24th. 2011, the Indian was even caught at Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto. The court then ordered Mr. Manukonda to stay 300 yards away from Randi, Mark Zuckerberg and his former girlfriend, Priscilla Chan - who since then became Zuckerberg’s wife.

Pradeep Manukonda eventually agreed to go home to India, but apparently he still cannot accept his defeat. Manukonda has now filed a lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg in an Indian court, accusing Zuckerberg and a local politician of a number of attacks against him, including one where he was ‘stabbed from the back’. Manukonda also accuses Zuckerberg of making a fake Facebook page that says he's a member of al-Qaeda; and that Zuckerberg is trying to damage his reputation.  A hearing is scheduled next week in India.
